Gender Gap in the Publishing Industry

I both love and hate this.  A bookstore turned all their titles by male authors around to “white out” the store.  I think that even they were shocked by how few titles there were by women.  The bookstore owner found that only 37% of the titles in the store were authored by women.

What do your bookshelves look like?  I know I read a lot of books by women, but I’ll be make more even more of an effort to support other women authors.

See an article on Loganberry Bookstore in Cleveland and their celebration of women authors.
