I have been following an interesting conversation online this past week or so about women SF writers. Nicola Griffith undertook the daunting task of crunching the numbers in the comments on a Guardian books post asking for readers’ favorite works in SF to see how many books by women authors were chosen as the commenter’s favorite book, and she discovered that books by female writers were chosen only 4% of the time. She wrote a post on her blog about why this might be the case, but more importantly, what can be done to raise the respect level for the contributions of female SF writers.
