Women Still Ride in the Back of the Bus

men vs women

I read an intriguing article by Ruth Franklin in the New Republic in February of this year that surveyed the number of books published and reviewed in the recent past. I was surprised to read the stats. Surprise. Surprise. It confirms my limited observations of the publishing world. According to Ms. Franklin:

At Harpers there were 27 men book reviewers and 6 women. 69% of the books reviewed were written by men.
