Where are the women poets?

‘”Where are the women poets?” asks […] Frank Ormsby, “Reviewers will latch on to that and repeat it ad nauseam. In my more splenetic moments I think: ‘If you think there are all these women poets, then you do an anthology of women’s poetry and see how far you get. If you get to 10 pages you’d be lucky.”‘

John O’Mahony, ‘Troubles In Mind; Literary life in Northern Ireland seems to be flourishing as never before’, The Guardian, 7 July 1993, p. 4.
