Remnick, other editors on the dearth of female bylines
Elissa Strauss says the overall message from the four editors who responded to her e-mail about the lack of female bylines was an agreement that things need to change. “There was not much in the way of explaining why things are the way they are – with one honest and admirable exception from The New Republic – and no comment on whether they receive and/or reject more pitches from women, nor on whether or not having more female editors might do the trick.”
