Without looking to start any controversy or raise a reoccurring argument from the dead I found this interesting but very wrong. The press publishes about 12 books a year and is obviously in a position to do this where bigger publishers would hurt themselves by doing so. I believe in equality and dislike discrimination, positive discrimination is as dangerous as negative as it opens the argument that (in this case) they only got published because...

100 years of women over 30 getting the vote celebrated by only publishing female authors seems a regressive and unconnected step to me. Ability is not mentioned one in the article a need for gender balance is the theme and the stats given relate to what is in effect competition. The booker and costa awards comities could have been given a voice in the article if any form of balance was sought.
