WiT (Women in Translation), Biblibio, Translationista, and others have sounded the alarm. Women authors in translation remain far behind men across several important categories: number of titles published; literary prizes won; book reviews, and criticism. Women translators are similarly underrepresented. What exactly are the numbers? How do publishing practices, both in the US and abroad, affect the statistics? What cultural and institutional factors are at work? A panel of translators and literary editors will explore the huge gender gap in translation and consider solutions. Is “awareness” enough?
