20.3. Best Review Contest. Katy's Task: Happy International Women's Day!
March is Women's History Month, which grew out of International Women's Day on March 8. International Women's Day has been celebrated since 1911. For this task, read a book that was published in 1911 or later and written by a female author who was born in or currently resides in a country other than your own. If a country is indicated in the GR bio for the author, that can be used. If not, this list may help: Authors by Country

When posting, please indicate your country and that of the author.

If you are not living in what you consider to be your country, you can define your country however you feel it's most appropriate and choose to read an author who is not from your country.

Please just remember when you post to state what your country is and the author's country.

Chinook | 33 comments Huh. So if I'm Canadian but I live in Korea, I can pick one of those to disqualify?

Yep. I don't want to be really restrictive on this - I don't want to get into what "your own" country means to you. You have to disqualify "your own" country and you can go either way if you don't live in "your" country.

You just need to clearly state your country and the author's country when you post, to make it easier for the moderators.
