VIDA: Women in Literary Arts works to raise awareness of gender disparity in the literary world today using their annual Count. Since its inception in 2009, The VIDA Count has made apparent the uneven playing field that exists in publishing and thus has helped to ignite important discourse and essential change in the literary community. Funds raised at this event, chaired by Anna March, will support the ongoing cost of The VIDA Count. Click here to buy tickets before they sell out!
