The Guardian has profiled Carmen Callil who founded the Virago Press.
Carmen Callil set up Virago to publish books that celebrated women – and dreamt of shelves of green paperbacks all over the world. The Modern Classics list gave voice to generations of novelists who might have been forgotten – three decades later it is as important as ever.
