In case you missed it, Sarah wrote an article for the Irish Times a couple of weeks ago, on how our reading habits can show unconscious bias: ‘Throwing the Book at Sexism‘ …as well as other ways female authors are overlooked, from reviews in major journals to considerations for literary awards.
This was picked up by the Guardian, a French journal and most recently the Huffington Post. We’re delighted that it’s generated discussion. Sarah was invited to speak to the Irish Times Women’s Podcast, you can listen back here.
For every angry, misogynist conspiracy-theorist email we received about this, we got three times as many messages of support; so thank you for that!
Watch this space, because there’ll probably be a sequel.
