Sentences You Could Only Have Read In The ‘Guardian’…

Emer O’Toole:

That’s why, no matter how much extra time it takes, nor how much art I need to pull from the fringes, I’m creating a gender balanced contemporary Irish theatre course.

Fighting the good fight, there, against ‘engrained bias against literature by women in society and in academia’.

    “If you want women writers go down the hall. What I teach is guys. Serious heterosexual guys.” I like the cut of David Gilmour’s jib.

    “”the canon is largely historical, and women writers were systematically written out.””

    Don’t mention the readers, of course. Not that the Grunge ever would.

      Are you suggesting that The Guardian actually has any readers.

        Clearly it does. It is subscribed to by numerous mental institutions. But not cafes.

        None that pay for the hardcopy… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
