This is a kind of peek into society that you just can’t avoid. Medium has a gender bias problem because society has a gender bias problem.

People are reading and following men more because they value men’s opinions more.

That’s not just sad, it’s terrible for all of us. Women matter, and the work they do matters. Tremendously.

So now, what the hell do we do about it? That’s the big question.
