Private: Gender

Bella Bathurst argues that “women will read a book by any author – male or female – but men tend only to read books by other men.” (Via The Literary Saloon.)

“The 8-to-18 female audience not only reads a lot of books but also flocks to movies based on those books, as Hollywood is discovering.” (Via Publishers Lunch.)

“The latest crop of pop entertainment, from reality television to the new generation of soap operas, is reinvigorating the debate about culture, gender and stereotypes.” (Via TMFTML.)
