Since 1996, the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, formerly known as the Orange Prize for Fiction, has awarded “excellence, originality and accessibility in women’s writing from throughout the world.”

The 2014 panel will include three new judges: bestselling author Caitlin Moran (How to Be a Woman), Cambridge classicist Mary Beard, and BBC journalist Sophie Raworth. The other panelists are crime novelist Denise Mina (Gods and Beasts) and Helen Fraser, Chief Executive of Girls’ Day School Trust, a network of female-only schools. 

The winner of the Women’s Prize, who will receive a £30,000 cash prize and a bronze sculpture named Bessie, will be announced next summer.
