WRITERS ON FILM: VIRAGO PRESS
This 2016 social history made by the BBC charts the story of groundbreaking feminist publishing house Virago Press which in 1973, in the days when publishing was a gentleman’s club, launched to publish new and neglected work by women writers who wanted to change the world – Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Maya Angelou and Rebecca West, Edith Wharton and Elizabeth Taylor included. Traversing the literary, feminist and business worlds, and with frank interviews, Changing the World One Page at a Time is a revealing look at an inspiring enterprise. Directed by Claire Whalley.
