Cat Bohannon and Noreen Masud longlisted for Women's Prize for Non-Fiction 2024

Sixteen women – including Cat Bohannon and Noreen Masud – are in the running for the inaugral Women's Prize for Non-Fiction, launched to redress the relatively low numbers of women recognised in nonfiction prizes. Cat Bohannon is longlisted for Eve (Hutchinson Heinemann) and Noreen Masud for her debut A Flat Place (Hamish Hamilton).

The launch of the nonfiction prize came in the wake of research commissioned by the Women’s prize that found that only 35% of books awarded a nonfiction prize over the past 10 years were written by women, across seven UK nonfiction prizes. The Prize will be awarded annually and is open to all women writers from across the globe who are published in the UK and writing in English. The winner receives a cheque for £30,000 and a limited-edition artwork known as the ‘Charlotte’, both gifted by the Charlotte Aitken Trust.
