In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating the countless accomplishments of women in literature! Here are 25 of our favorite contemporary female authors who are writing stories today that speak to people around the world.

Because there’s no way we could possibly rank these amazing writers, the authors in this list are presented in alphabetical order by their first names.
