The 2014 VIDA Count is now out, showing the progress (or lack of) of some of the top literary publications. The LRB and TLS continue to be bottom of the class, despite numerous attempts over the last few years to make them care about their shocking lack of parity. On the other hand, Boston Review, Poetry, and Granta among others, continue to do well.

While the VIDA count cannot help subscribing to a gender binary for its count, it was good to see them trying to extend their count beyond gender to race, even if, by their own admission, their 'dataset is incomplete'.

Overall, I'm in awe at the work that VIDA do to try and and make an impact on the literary landscape. Here's to their efforts continuing to get bigger, better and more intersectional as they progress.
