If these numbers do anything, they force us to consider just what it is to be “dominant” in a field like YA literature. … I would argue that, at the very least, this sampling of the NYT Best Seller Lists proves that there are different kinds of dominance to be had, and that women do not always come out ahead. Even if there are fewer men making the NYT Lists overall, the men that do make the list are compensated in other ways.
This post is so interesting! Everybody who’s been following the discourse on gender and representation in YA should read this.
