Check out my latest post about The 2015 VIDA count on Mocha Girls Read.
VIDA is a research organization whose aims to “increase critical
attention to contemporary women’s writing as well as further
transparency around gender equality issues in contemporary literature
culture.” One of the ways VIDA does this is with The Count. Beginning in
2010 and every year since, VIDA counts the rates of publication of male
and female authors in various prestigious magazines that published
fiction, nonfiction, and poetry during the prior year. The organization
looks at whose books were reviewed, who did the reviewing, which authors
were interviewed, who the interviewers were and more.
