I’m not denying that both high and low culture need women’s voices, but maybe...– I have been despairing about the VIDA stats on women’s representation in magazines like The Atlantic and Harper’s (among other things), but Emily Gould is entirely fucking right. I open The New Yorker these days and think, “There’s nothing here for me.” So instead of reading it out of duty or to...
