Action Alert | 'This American Life'? Or 'This Dude's Life'?
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
