In the Fluff Section: Arts News About Women

I love The Guardian. Truly I do. It has some of the best arts coverage on the planet. But this morning, the paper nearly made me hyperventilate.

It wasn't arts correspondent Mark Brown's story on the dismal representation of women in British theater, film and television, which I was glad to see (not the fact of the underrepresentation, but the stats, and the discussion). It wasn't the article's cheesy headline, "Leading ladies kept out of the limelight." It was where the story ran in the paper.

It's in the Life & Style section. You know: the part of the paper that has categories like Fashion, Homes, Gardens, Craft -- and Women.


Sigh sigh sigh.

The story is linked on the Stage page, in the Culture section, which is where I found it, but that's not where the paper's editors ran it.

Which, really, is pretty disgusting.
