Book Reviewers: The Gender Imbalance

VIDA, an organization for women in the literary arts, released a series of charts illustrating the results of “VIDA Count 2012”…that’s a tally of male and female book reviewers at major publications -- including The Atlantic, Harpers, and The New York Times Book Review -- and the gender of authors they reviewed over the past three years. Jason Boog is editor of the publishing website "Galleycat", where he blogged about the findings.
