For centuries, women have been using their words to educate and inspire — from Coretta Scott King’s tales from the frontlines of the civil rights movement to Malala Yousafzai’s story of surviving an assassination attempt from the Taliban. While female writers haven’t always received the recognition they deserve, many are finally being celebrated for the impact their stories have had on the world.
In honor of Women’s History Month, we teamed up with Audible to highlight some of the female writers whose words are empowering readers worldwide. Check out our list of incredible women whose stories come to life through the performances of their must-hear audiobooks.
