Women in Publishing: An Oral History

The Women in Publishing Oral History website celebrates the achievements of women in book publishing during the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s. Coming together in 1979 to create their own networking organisation, members of Women in Publishing remember the challenges they faced, the problems they overcame, and how, through striving for greater equality, they changed the industry in which they worked.

The site contains more than a hundred interviews, categorised by theme. Following its successful launch, it was featured on Radio Four’s Woman’s Hour, as well as pieces in the trade press and the Independent.
