I'm compiling a list of Nobel authors I'm interested in reading, so I started researching. Colour me surprised.
110 authors honoured. 13 of them women.
Austen got it worded for me a century earlier than the birth of the price
"Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.”
Also, double birds.
