How now spirit, wither wander you?
Oprah recently hosted some of the former SNL cast and this was one of the big issues they brought up - very sad!
Wow, well this is depressing. Not surprising, but sad.
I don't know if you saw this response last year to the charges that women who worked at the Daily Show were treated poorly because of their gender. According to them, 40% of the staff are female. Yes only 2 of those women are writers, but are as many women trying to get into that field? Better, but admittedly still not half, are the correspondent numbers on that show (2 of 6 or 1/3) and contributors (1/5). I'm more disappointed that there's only one female host, and that was the one I didn't recognize on the list.
Adam, sorry I missed that episode. It seems like it would have been interesting.Red, yes, sad. It's also sad how few women authors are on the various best sellers lists compared to men. Check this out:http://statette.tumblr.com/post/4266510875/ever-wonder-why-there-arent-more-female-authors-on-theJohn, I read the Daily Show response. Very funny, but maybe the exception. I've watched interviews with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey discussing how difficult it is for women to get into comedy. I haven't seen Chelsea Handler's show, but I've seen her do other stuff and she's really funny. I wish there were more women in late night too.
Thank you so much for this list! Another sad set of statistics...
Red, Statette has similar thing throughout the website. I'm not sure if I want to keep looking though. It's a little depressing.
I was avoiding going through her blog to keep from being depressed but I may have to venture over there anyway.
Though it's sad, I think it's an easy and kind of entertaining way to stay informed.
