Let's Hear It For the Boy ... or Is It the Girl?

Claudia La Rocco has written a fantastic article about sexism in the world of Broadway play writing. She discusses how 2011 has been among the more female-friendly seasons in memory for playwrights, with new plays by Theresa Rebeck, Katori Hall, Lydia R. Diamond, and Elaine May on the boards. Through a profile of Rebeck's new play Seminar, which is, in fact, about many of the same issues La Rocco discusses in her article, La Rocco discusses the gender politics of this world we live in. I have linked to the article below and would love to get a conversation started about this, Let me know what you all think.
