Sisters in Crime: Helping crime writers since 1993


Sisters in Crime is an international organization of writers, readers, booksellers, librarians, agents, editors, reviewers, and teachers. We’re interested in promoting the professional development and advancement of women and other underrepresented crime writers to achieve equality in the industry. The organization was founded in 1986 by Sara Paretsky with other women mystery writers and enthusiasts. Sisters in Crime has over 45 local chapters around the world.
