'Virago was an idea of Carmen Callilís, born out of a particular time, place and politics. Forty years on Virago is the outstanding international publisher of books by women. The cultural, political and economic landscape has changed dramatically in the last four decades, but Virago has remained true to its original aims: to put women centre stage; to explore the untold stories of their lives and histories; to break the silence around many womenís experiences; to publish breathtaking new fiction alongside a rich list of rediscovered classics; and above all to champion womenís talent. Sometimes we publish to entertain, sometimes we publish to give readers the sheer pleasure of beautiful writing, sometimes we publish to change the world.'
