Erm, Bob Dylan Has Won A Nobel Prize For Literature While Women Got Nothing

The last winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize has been announced and, shock horror, it's not a woman

The Nobel Prize Committee have just announced its final winner and, to be frank, we're slightly peeved.

To round off the prestigious list of award-winners, US singer Bob Dylan has been awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature, 'for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition'.

Not only is the 70-year-old crooner the first songwriter to win the prestigious award (which doesn't make any sense by the way – give the man an award for music fine, but literature?), but the list of all six Nobel laureates this year are men.

Right, so you're tell me out of all the prizes – from physics, chemistry, physiology, peace and economic sciences – not one woman deserved to win?

Excuse me Nobel Prize Committee, can we just point out in the 115 years you've been going, 833 men have won the Nobel Prize, compared to 48 women.

That's less than 6 per cent.

To make matters worse, just four of those women have been black.

I'm sorry, what are we doing wrong here?

I'll tell you what, nothing.

Get your act together, guys because we're seriously bored of this gender discrimination.
