The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies is holding a one-day conference on the theme of 'Women in Publishing' at Oxford Brookes University.

Taking place:

The Buckley Building

The Glass Ceiling - is it still in evidence to women in the publishing industry? 

This conference focuses on the role and position of women within the contemporary publishing industry.  The UK publishing industry is populated by a predominantly female workforce.  But, several decades after the foundation of feminist publishers such as Virago, have women achieved equality both as employees and as writers?  Is there still a glass-ceiling effect operating at board-room level, or has the appointment in the 1990s and 2000s of women to managerial positions changed publishing culture for good?  How do women construct their publishing career paths, and what are the opportunities and strengths of women in publishing?
