CWILA annual reviewers count is coming up to reveal the amount of women writers out there present and working.
Last year's exposed that women are underrpresented: no way.
There was this article, WOMEN IN THE ARTS: HOW CAN WE GIVE THEM “A GENUINE SHOT AT HISTORY”?, written about CWILA and VIDA's counts as well as women's representation in art and history in response to the Guardian's article Women in art: why are all the ‘great’ artists men?.
It questions "How can [leaders of a community] that includes artists & writers & musicians & actors & creative professionals of all kinds, help change this [imbalanced representation]?
The CWILA/VIDA project is interesting, timely and necessary.
What are your thoughts on the representation of women writing and being published in literary outlets; do you think this project helps expose and potentially correct an imbalance; what can be done to have a better representation of voices?
