Stop the Presses, Boys! Women Claim Space on Op-Ed Pages by Patricia Cohen
Cohen presents a lovely look at the dearth of female op-ed writers in the country. I'm also glad to know there are people trying to remedy the situation. Having a wide variety of voices and backgrounds is crucial to great op-ed pages and the discourse these pages should foster. As I'm in the midst of Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope, I daresay a diversity of voices remains critical for the success of a democracy as well.
