EnGendering The New BAG


Since The BAG is entering a new era next week, I just wanted to clarify (in response to a comment in yesterday’s kick-off postand, at the risk that Salon Editor Sandra Roa, left, and Contributor Nina Berman — wonderful photographers both — might not simply love my rather quick iPhone snap from Nina’s Whitney Biennial opening) that BNN’s primary brain trust, if you include Deputy Publisher Karen Hull, Salon Moderator Cara Finnegan, and BAG consultant and R.I.T. professor Loret Steinberg, is actually 70% female.

    I had a feeling that percentage was above fifty. I don’t know how those two women feel about that pic, but I love it for what it captures rather than composes. It’s a perfect mate to the Michael and Alan under the umbrella shot, which I love for the same reasons.

    bystander: there is a lot going on right now behind the scenes, but I wanted to just take a second to thank you and let you know how much we appreciate the BNN readership back.

    Oh, I was mostly joking, making fun of myself because I point out gender so often. I didn’t actually mean to call you out; I assume you find the best people for the job in general.
