The Virago Story

“Scholars in the fields of book history, publishing studies, and gender studies will welcome the arrival of this book–an important and long overdue study charting how one of the world’s most established feminist presses not only survived but also found ways to adapt and thrive in a radically restructured political and publishing landscape.” – Kate Eichhorn, The New School

The Virago Story
Assessing the Impact of a Feminist Publishing Phenomenon.  (Protest, Culture and Society)
By Catherine Riley

The 1970s witnessed a renaissance in women’s print culture, as feminist presses and bookshops sprang up in the wake of the second-wave women’s movement. At four decades’ remove from that heady era, however, the landscape looks dramatically different, with only one press from the period still active in contemporary publishing: Virago.

This engaging history explains how, from modest beginnings, Virago managed to weather epochal transformations in gender politics, literary culture, and the book publishing business. Drawing on original interviews with many of the press’s principal figures, it gives a compelling account of Virago’s place in recent women’s history while also reflecting on the fraught relationship between activism and commerce.
