Usual Guardianista whine: not enough women doing things.
Male journalists wrote 78% of all front-page articles and men accounted for 84% of those mentioned or quoted in lead pieces, according to analysis of nine national newspapers, Monday to Saturday, over the course of four weeks.
Hmm, so, why?
Well, consider the fact that it took three women to write this article.
Additional research by Rachel Cranshaw and Kira Cochrane.
OK, and the three of them together managed to get it this wrong:
This article was amended on 14 October 2012 to rephrase a reference to the abducted child Madeleine McCann being \”regularly photographed\” during the period in question. She was also referred to as a woman.
So might it all be a simple matter of competence?
