Women read more than men do. It’s a fact.
Last year 82% of women read a book while only 69% of men did.
Not only that, women who read averaged 14 books last year while men who read only averaged 10. More women read AND women read more.
But even with women reading more than men, and with almost an even distribution between men and women authors in the amount of books published, books by women are more easily ignored.
