A new study finds that few of the top literary publications are giving equal time to women authors and reviewers.
The highly anticipated "VIDA Count," released Monday, has The New Yorker, The Nation and The Atlantic among those devoting less than 40 percent of their book coverage to women in 2017. Only two of the 15 publications analyzed gave women 50 percent or more — Poetry magazine and Granta. Those between 40 percent and 49 percent include The New York Times Book Review and the Paris Review.
VIDA, otherwise known as Women in Literary Arts, has been tallying gender disparities in book reviews since 2010.
