Or are articles, reviews etc featuring authors always far more likely to feature a large, glossy picture of the person in question (often taking up more space than the text) if it happens to be a female – especially a young, attractive one?
I’m awarding ten points for the answer to today’s question.
(A clue: it’s not ‘No’)
It could be that the result of male sexism, but the strange thing is I know for a fact that a lot of the examples I’ve come across are by female writers/editors.
Neither is it jealousy on my part – the last thing I’d want staring out at me is a full-page picture of me. It’s just odd, that’s all…
