Bridget Williams in the 2019 Women of Influence awards

Bridget Williams was nominated for the 2019 Women of Influence by women in New Zealand publishing – and she has been named a finalist in the Arts and Culture section of these significant awards.

Bridget says ‘it’s all about the books – the place that books have in our lives’. And she acknowledges the tremendous influence of presses like Virago and Women’s Press in the UK, the Listener Women’s Book Festival here in New Zealand, and the sequential waves of books that have enriched our knowledge of women’s lives, history, creativity and political imagination. Here at BWB we are proud of our founder’s achievements, and honoured to be part of this narrative. We are excited to connect to so many different stories about women’s experience through the Women of Influence Awards at www.womenofinfluence.co.nz/finalists.
