WOMEN’S WAY Book Prize Committee

The Book Prize Committee is responsible for selecting the winner of the 16th Annual WOMEN’S WAY Book Prize. 

Committee Details and Responsibilities:

  • Books will be assigned via email on March 18, 2024.
  • The Book Prize Committee will meet virtually on April 24, 2024 to discuss the books and pick the two finalists. Attendance is required for this meeting.
  • Everyone will be responsible for reading the two finalists, filling out a form supporting their choice for the winner, and coming to a final virtual meeting to vote for their selection.

If you would like to be considered for the WOMEN’S WAY Book Prize Committee, please fill out this form by Friday, March 15th, 2024. If we receive more interest than availability, we will use a lottery system to determine who receives a space on the Committee. Please note that prior involvement does not guarantee future participation.

The Book Prize honors a woman or gender-expansive author or co-author for their work in advancing the dialogue about issues impacting women and girls.  Established in 2007, this prize honors the legacy of Ernesta Drinker Ballard, a WOMEN’S WAY founder, the first president of its Board of Directors, and an extraordinary champion for women and girls.
