VICE has broad appeal for Octopus

Octopus imprint Cassell is to publish a feminist series by Zing Tsjeng, UK editor of VICE.com’s women’s interest channel Broadly, uncovering the lost “herstories” of women “who have refused over thousands of years to accept the hand they had been dealt”, according to the publisher.

The first in the series, Forgotten Women: The Scientists and Forgotten Women: The Leaders, will be published on 8th March 2018 - International Women’s Day.

The Scientists uncovers the work of 48 women from a myriad of scientific disciplines, while The Leaders weaves together 48 portraits of pioneers who made “huge yet unacknowledged” contributions to history.

Commissioning editor Romilly Morgan acquired world rights from RCW’s Emma Paterson.
