Wanna Start A Revolution?

Over on FanSci on Monday, I posted about my experiences writing and publishing Science Fiction, many of which influenced my shift into feminism.

Anyway, here is an essay by Melissa Delorenzo on the latest publishing statistics, which show, no real shock here, that still fewer women are being published than men, in all fields.

It goes on to mention a few things editors and publishers might consider doing to amend that real difference -- because, like those professors that ran my program, back in the day, it's not just an immutable law of the universe that more men are getting published than women. These things don't just HAPPEN. Humans make the world. Humans can make it different.
