The Staunch Book Prize was launched in 2018 and is awarded to the author of a novel in the thriller genre in which no woman is beaten, stalked, sexually exploited, raped or murdered. It aims to draw attention to the plethora of violence towards women in fiction, and to make space for exciting alternatives, narratives wherein female characters don’t serve merely as collateral to pump up the plot, and where they are not subject to physical or sexual violence purely as a means of motivating the (most often male) protagonist.
Join founder Bridget Lawless and writer and researcher of crime fiction Rachel Marsh for an evening of discussion around the Staunch prize, its timeliness and its (occasionally controversial) reception.
