Editor Robert Lee Brewer of Poetic Asides writes about the Poet Laureate debate that is going on in England in a post titled;Female Poet Laureate?!?
I have to admit that I did not know that in 340 years England has only had men Poet Laureates. You would think that over the years a woman would have been picked by now.
For a list of American Poet Laureates check out the Library of Congress' Poet Laureate timeline.
