Sandstone Press in the news

We’ve been disappointed to see misleading information about Sandstone Press and Women Hold Up Half the Sky in the press and online today.

As reported by the Sunday Mail this morning, Sandstone Press has not been contacted by Police Scotland.

As we have previously stated on our website, collections of speeches in the public domain have a long publishing history - from The Penguin Book of Modern Speeches, to collections by individuals such as Tony Benn and Barack Obama. In this selection of her speeches, Nicola Sturgeon considers such diverse matters as gender and other equalities, the climate crisis, education, and human rights.

Women Hold Up Half The Sky is published and financed independently of any public body. Sandstone Press has received no funding for this book.

Similar to many Scottish businesses Sandstone Press has received support from HIE. This is in relation to business resilience and not any project or publication.
