Uh, so this is a list of women who write (brilliantly) on Medium.

Surely the question is: do the bots explicitly downgrade female authors in the algorithm? If not, and all other things being equal, surely we should be happy as the algorithm is fair? So the probability of you getting an article by a female is based on the number of articles written by females. I. E. The more articles the more likely you are going to come across one. Or are we inferring we want to somehow sway the results to show female articles to females? That’s a dangerous road. I’d rather have results based on the match against my criteria where gender does not factor.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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