Read a Girl

We amplify women’s voices

Read a Girl started after I realised that even though I was an avid reader, my reading list was dominated by men. I set myself up to start reading more women and documented my findings on a Facebook page that later developed into a monthly newsletter and an Instagram profile.

Read a Girl’s main goal is to promote the work of women authors. Featured by Inc. and Mashable as one of the best newsletters of 2020, Read a Girl’s mission is to bring to light the work of amazing writers who, sometimes, get overshadowed by their gender.
