August is #womenintranslation month. The reason this online movement began a few years ago is the relatively smaller number of women writers getting translated across languages compared to men writers. There is a little bit of history in the first bit of the article.

So my short stories column at PopMatters this month has five stories by award-winning women writers from across the world, translated by women translators. All are free to read online. Enjoy.

The writers and their translators are:

Olga Tokarczuk (tr. Jennifer Croft)

Sayaka Murata (tr. Ginny Tapley Takemori)

Mahasweta Devi (tr. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak)

Malika Moustadraf (tr. Alice Guthrie)

Dorthe Nors (tr. Misha Hoekstra)

Read all the stories at PopMatters.
