When answering a survey about the FT I was asked if there was enough content written by women and whether I was more or less likely to comment on articles if I could do so anonymously.
This reminded me that, while many FT articles are written by female journalists, the letters page seems to be dominated by men. I wonder if this is due to lower female readership, women’s reluctance to give their opinions, sexism on the part of the letters editor or a mixture of all three.
I would be interested to hear the views of all genders.
