Victoria Smith and Caroline attend the 2023 Nero Books Awards where Victoria’s HAGS is shortlisted in the Non-Fiction category.

The 2023 Non-Fiction judges said ‘Funny and furious, whip-smart and eye opening, HAGS is a brave and important book that could hardly be more timely and necessary.’

In HAGS, Smith takes a thematic approach to subjects from violence to care work, focusing on the collision of ageism and misogyny in current culture.

Victoria Smith is a writer for The Critic, with an interest in motherhood, misogyny, ageism, and women’s issues. She is also the writer and creator of The OK, Karen Newsletter. Victoria tweets @glosswitch.
