      Canadian author David Gilmour sparks furore over female writers / Giller award nominee and University of Toronto professor says he won't teach books written by women or Chinese authors

    • Alicia Spencer-Hall

      Prof David Gilmour says "I'm not interested in teaching books by women. Virginia Woolf is the only writer that interests me as a woman writer, so I do teach one of her short stories.

Marginalisation of women from consideration of literature happens to this day. Gilmour will only teach "serious heterosexual guys"
