    “. In the case of Tin House, the editorial staff has publicly declared that they’re making a conscious effort to publish more women authors.”

    This is the definition of sexism. I think any gender-based decision is ultimately deleterious to anti-sexist causes, even if it looks like it’s doing good for women (or men.)

    Instead, all decisions should be gender-neutral. Maybe even try to hide the author’s gender or something like that, if it’s believed that editorial might unconsciously consider it as a determining factor..
