Posted at 7:39AM Wednesday 30 Apr 2014

Melbourne historian and author Clare Wright's book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka, has won this year's $50,000 Stella prize for women's writing.

The book, which explores the lead-up to the famous Eureka stockade rebellion in the 1850s, offers a "rare combination of true scholarship with a warmly engaging narrative voice", judges said.
