Anne Boyd Rioux has published an essay on the VIDA website comparing the roles of women in the late-19th-c. literary world with today. Sadly, things haven’t changed as much as we might think. (VIDA is an organization that has conducted a count each year since 2009 of women’s writings and reviews of their works in the leading literary venues. Their documentation of the very low representation of women writers–25% or less in many cases–has galvanized discussion of the persistent obstacles to women writers’ success.)
