Feminism 2003: Travails of a Woman Writer
Recently I have noticed an increased number of articles online and in journals about feminism. Some of them impress me and I’d like to share them, starting with one today in The Nation, April 29, 2013 edition. The VIDA study recently revealed that The Nation reviewed 92 books by men and only 27 by women in 2012. Maybe the journal is trying to make amends by publishing this article about a writer, now on the short list for the British Women ‘s Prize for Fiction–formerly the Orange prize. She recounts how she has been treated by the male literary establishment.
What do you think feminists should do about the continuing bias in publishing and reviewing in our various countries?
