Irish Broad Left has committed to gender-equal publishing, which means we will monitor our website each month to ensure that at least 50 per cent of articles are written by women, and that at least 50 per cent of our authors are women.
For our first month we published a total of 31 articles, including two published by the website administrators.
Of the 29 articles that were published and attributed to authors, 18 were written by women. (There may be a difference in the two figures – percentage of articles written by women and percentage of women as contributors – if some authors contribute more than one article each month).
As a result, for February 2019 the percentage of articles published by Irish Broad Left that were written by women was slightly over 62 per cent.
The total percentage of women authors was slightly over 58.6%.
