Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk, Episode 14: Gender Parity in the SFF Community

In this episode of Rocket Talk, Renay from Lady Business comes on the show to talk about their blogger survey of gender parity in review coverage. Justin and Renay discuss why the survey came to be, how it works, and what kinds of conclusions or questions can be drawn from it.

From Lady Business:

Project thesis: when looking at a sample of bloggers reviewing SF/F, a majority of men will skew toward reviewing more men. A majority of women will skew toward a more equal gender parity, or the opposite in which they review a majority of women. There will be a handful of outliers.

You can check out the results of the survey for 2011, 2012, and 2013.
