I would say that to have none of Jane Austen, George Eliot, George Sand, Charlotte Bronte, Agatha Christie or - dare I say it - Beatrix Potter or J. K. Rowling (just for example) is a curious omission though. And when you consider that the three best-selling novelists of all time are women - which is surely "noteworthy" if anything is - it's very curious. But it's not my quiz.
Turns out Jane Austen is in quiz no. 2, along with the also obvious Virginia Woolf. Bonzer.
Leeway on what is accepted, sure. But noone gains from the answers being displayed as something else.
