Do women have to be naked to get into U.S. museums? Less than 3% of the artists in the Met. Museum are women, but 83% of the nudes are female (Observer, January 8, 2012).

The following does not resonate with me as as a complete and legitimate statement of the issue (gender inequality):

The #diversityaudit search term on Twitter – some examples

@hepvintage #diversityaudit @BBCRadio4 panel show The Unbelievable Truth. The sadly believeable truth is 1 host = male and 4 guests = male
