LINK FROM SARA



VIA JEZEBEL

FROM THE ARTICLE:

Wilson did a little number crunching and blogged about her findings. Guess what?
Let me start by saying just how fed up we are of getting basically this exact same email (which we also get in the form of tweets and Facebook comments, and one-star reviews that we “only” talk about women). Our predecessors got this message, too. And we’ve pretty much handled it the same way. Even though it should not be a problem to talk about women more than we talk about men, we’ve gone back into the archive and looked, and what we’ve found is that a sound majority of our shows that could be classified as “men” or “women” are about men. Even through dedicated, continual effort to talk about women, we still don’t even come close to a 50/50 split.
