Just in case you’re wondering I am still keeping an eye on Waterstones and gender bias issues. At some point I will do another analysis of their monthly promotional emails.
The latest for June will certainly help those statistics – a quick and dirty count shows ten books by female writers promoted alongside twelve by men.
There are still issues – apparently women don’t write history/non-fiction as all those titles are by male authors.
But detailed analysis will have to wait as I contemplate the best way to tackle digitizing the Aldabreshin Archipelago map 🙂
