It seems that Ellen Goodman of the Boston Globe is concerned that too many rich, white males are overshadowing women in the left sector of the blogosphere.
I began tracking the maleness of this media last spring...An intrepid graduate student created a spreadsheet of the top 90 political blogs. A full 42 percent were edited and written by men only, while 7 percent were by women only. Another 45 percent were edited or authored by both men and women, though the "coed" mix was overwhelmingly male. And, not surprisingly, most male bloggers linked to male bloggers.Ok, she may not be wrong about this....maybe the blogosphere as a whole is dominated by men. A feminist would be bothered by that. Then I began to wonder, as this complaining seems to be a gender equity, if we'll see any discussion about the fairness doctrine in the blogosphere.
I'm not sure what criteria were involved in creating a spreadsheet of the top 90 political blogs (I'd love to see that list).
Ellen, check out this blog and Intellectuelle.
