Hilarious title aside, Current’s recent article on the gender makeup of This American Life’s episodes is no laughing matter. According to Current, even though 57% of the employees working on This American Life are women, almost ⅔ of air time on the show is given to men — and that doesn’t include speaking time for the host who is a man! Ira Glass, set an example and demand more women’s voices on your show.

Only ⅓ of air time on @ThisAmerLife features a woman speaking. This needs to change. #thiswomanslife #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-this-american-life-this-dudes-life
