So…. what did I learn from a month dedicated to reading only books and stories by women?

1. More of us should dedicate a month to reading books by women.

By “us”, I mean those of us whose default book setting is “white guys”. Far more books are published by men than by women, perhaps because publishers feel that books by men are a safer bet. We can affect this by making a choice when it comes to the books we buy, since how we chose to spend our money is the most effective weapon we have. I certainly aim to be more conscious from now on.*

2. There is no difference in the quality of books between the genders.

Seriously. This is not the reason women sell less than men. This is not a revelation by any means but I still feel it worth mentioning. The grittiness of Beukes’ book, the sheer quality of Munro’s prose and the otherworldly feel to Tidbeck’s stories are a good example. The success of women at the Hugos this year (best novel, best novelette, best editor, best fan writer…) further drives this point home.

from Lessons From A Month of Reading Only Books By Women by Johann Thorsson (via bookriot)

Pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before. Also pretty sure out of 120ish books I’ve read so far this year, less than 10 were by men. Those ten were also comics by mattfractionblog and kierongillen and they mostly get my personal feminist pass. LADY WRITERS FOR THE WIN!
