The Costa Prize Shortlist and Sexism
Foz Meadows blogs at The Huffington Post about the misogynistic responses to a reasoned and sensible article by Amanda Craig on the fact that, for the first time in its history, this year's Costa Prize winners (with the exception of one co-writer) are all women. Instead of congratulations the comments by many of the male commenters are frankly shocking. Apparently we women are just endless trouble makers and always complaining. Hmm, I wonder why.
