Browse the 2020 Women's Prize shortlist, including 2020 winner Hamnet. When announcing the shortlist during lockdown in April 2020, Chair of the Judges Martha Lane Fox said: “We are all living in challenging, sad and complex times so incredible stories provide hope, a moment of escape and a point of connection now more than ever. Choosing the shortlist was tough – we went slowly and carefully and passions ran high – just as you would want in such a process. But we are all so proud of these books – all readers will find solace if they pick one up.”
