VIDA Stats, MacQ-7:
Although links to only 48 bios are included above, this issue contains works by a total of 49 contributors: 22 women (45%) and 27 men (55%).
Of the 49 contributors, 20 (or 41%) are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash.
Of the 20 “new” contributors, 9 are women (45%) and 11 are men (55%).
With MacQ, as it was with KYSO Flash, our publisher’s goal is to balance the ratio of women to men authors and artists whenever possible—which happened only once: Issue 7 of KYSO Flash contains works by 32 contributors, exactly half of whom are women.
However, in each of 12 issues, from Fall 2014 thru Summer 2019, KYSO Flash consistently published a minimum of 44% women authors and artists. Fifty-nine percent was the highest percentage of women published, which occurred in Issue 11, Spring 2019.
For details about each of those issues, see our Historical VIDA stats.
