Action Alert | Imagined Men Outnumber Real Women In Economics Textbooks
We love this article, shared with us by Kathleen Schatzberg (@kschatzb), about economics textbooks and the underrepresentation of women. Would you believe that “three-quarters of the people mentioned in the books (77 percent), real or imagined, are male”? (Who are we kidding? Of course you would.) Imagined men trump real live women. Tell all your friends.
"Three-quarters of the people mentioned in [economics textbooks] (77 percent), real or imagined, are male." Take that to the bank! h/t @kschatzb #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-imagined-men-outnumber-real-women-economics-textbooks
