Male writers continue to dominate literary criticism, Vida study finds

Women buy two-thirds of books sold but magazine reviews are centred on male authors and critics – though picture is beginning to change

The continuing bias towards men in the British and American literary establishment has been confirmed by a study released on Tuesday.

Vida, a US organisation championing women in literature, examined a wide range of publications from both sides of the Atlantic, including the New Yorker, the London Review of Books, the Times Literary Supplement and Granta, and found that in 2014 the majority still had heavily male-centred literary coverage, both in their use of reviewers and the books that were reviewed.

We want editors to be aware of their habits and open their mind to other voices, and we think that is happening
