Svetlana Alexievich, a Belarussian author who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2015, has decided to create her own publishing house just for women, Nasha Niva news website reported

“Men, they are everywhere, and women’s works are rarely published,” the writer said.

The opening of the publishing house for women will help give women writers more confidence about themselves and their desire to write, Nasha Niva quoted Alexievich as saying. According to the media, she came up with the idea of creating a publishing house six months ago and it will be opened in a few months.

In October 2019, Alexievich told the Spanish daily newspaper “El Mundo” that today feminism is really needed and that in our new reality, in which people must be more rational and respectful to one another, feminist views may be very interesting.

Svetlana Alexievich’s books are translated to 52 languages and are published in 55 countries.
