Sheffield publisher to only publish writing by women
« on: February 15, 2018, 09:31:44 AM »
The publisher does only publish 12 books a year, so it won't be a massive change. Kamila Shamsie wanted all publishers to only publish women for a year - which does seem a bit extreme to me. To be honest when I go into a bookshop I don't notice a lot of imbalance in fiction books when it comes to gender - non fiction I do notice it a bit more.

Seems a bit off for that article to have no mention of Virago doesn't it?
