The Count!

An organization called VIDA: Women In Literary Arts has an amazing project where they count up articles in popular press written by and about women artists.  They make some simple pie charts, like this one

that express their findings.  Here's a spoiler:  they all look like that, or have even less blue pie pieces than that one.  I had heard some pretty damning numbers like those a few years ago, and, it's one of the reasons I almost exclusively review books by women for the weekly magazine I write for.  Plus I just really like women writers.   Check out the rest of their graphs - it's pretty shocking!
