2013 CWILA Numbers: Tracking the Ratio of Male to Female Writers in Canadian Literary Media


Since 2012, Canadian Women in the Literary Arts has released their count which “tracks the ratio of male to female authors and critics represented in Canadian literary media” [Quill & Quire] and the numbers are now in for 2013.

The 2013 CWILA Count was our biggest yet. The results reveal why we must continue to raise the issue of gender equity in Canadian literary culture. A gender gap remains and our numbers talk: since 2012, CWILA has been sparking conversations that close the gap. [CWILA]
