As we near the end of the year, newspapers are starting to run their 10 most important/10 best lists of people, news stories, books, music, etc.  If you happen across such lists, please look to see whether the list was compiled by a man or woman and how many women are included in the lists.  For instance, The New York Times just published a list where they asked ten prominent writers what they thought the most significant things about the last decade were.  Only two of the authors were women.

I am in the process of collecting examples such as these for a presentation I will be making available this spring on gender and media so if you find examples, I would be most grateful if you would post them in the comments or send to fpn @
