The numbers: Media inequity for women in media
VIDA’s annual list of female bylines in literary arts magazines is out and the numbers aren’t good.
From article authors to book reviewers to authors of books reviewed, women are underrepresented.
The Women’s Media Center also illustrates the issues of inequity in The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2012, noting that women make up a minority of sources in news reports.
Take a look at these reports and consider what we as JAWS members can do. Good Magazine’s solution is a place to start: Recommend women you know to people in power in the industry. Do it today.
