New Yorker - April 9, 2012

The New Yorker was getting unusually close to parity last week, so to make up for it, the parity score is only a little more than half of last week's score. So don't get too uppity, bitches.

The New Yorker Parity Report

A regular report on the gender parity - or lack thereof - of the current issue of The New Yorker based on table of contents by-lines
Includes fiction, non-fiction, poems. Does not include illustrations.

A score of 50% means that half of all writers in the issue are female.
A score of greater than 50% would mean more female than male writers. This never happens.

Parity change from previous week: -13%
