E&P: Female Editorial Cartoonists Scarce


According to a survey conducted by Editor and Publisher based on the offerings of the major syndicates, three of the 77 are women. Sadly, this is the exact same group of women that were being offered ten years ago: Signe Wilkinson, Ann Telnaes and Etta Hulme. The article indicates that a slightly better ratio of women to men can be found in the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, 21 of 329, which of course could also be used to argue that even those few existing women in editorial cartooning are comparably underemployed.
