British author Naomi Alderman has won the international Women’s Prize for Fiction – for her gender role-reversal thriller The Power.

Alderman is a prize-winning novelist and an online games designer.

Her $39,000 prize was awarded in London Wednesday – recognizing Alderman’s novel – in which girls and women suddenly discover they have the power to electrocute people at will.

Alderman beat five other finalists; including Canada’s Madeleine Thien.

Founded in 1996, the prestigious prize is open to female English-language writers from around the world.

It’s officially named the Baileys Women’s Prize – after its cream-liqueur sponsor.
