Feature Friday: International Women's Day

Yesterday was International Women's Day so today's post is dedicated to famous women writers.
Here are just a few!

J.K. Rowling

Ursula Le Guin

Cornelia Funke

Banana Yoshimoto

Margaret Atwood

Maya Angelou

Judy Blume

Sylvia Plath

Kate Chopin

Virginia Woolf

Anne Frank

Enid Blyton

Agatha Christie

Christina Rossetti

There are hundreds of amazing women writer's so this is a very small sample but isn't it great that there's so many to choose from? The list just keeps getting bigger too. I haven't featured many contemporary writers because I think it takes time to become 'great' and so most of the 'great women writers' we think of sadly aren't with us any more. But their work lives on and if you haven't read it, you should. I do wish that there was more variety in race with my list...any recommendations?
