Gender Disparity at the Top of the Charts: A Visualization
Devin Smith

Just wondering — is there any particular reason why female artists are being singled out here? Why’s it only women who are being urged to consider the gender-balance (in, it has to be said, a rather patronising way)? Especially when, by your own admission, albums of female artists “are probably more inclusive than those of male artists” — shouldn’t it be the men who get an open letter about this?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
