MEN SEEM TO DOMINATE TRAVEL LITERATURE… or at least the popular culture of it. When we think of travel writers, authors like Jack Kerouac, Bill Bryson, and Paul Theroux come to mind. We know them. We respect them. We see them in lists like this and this and this all the time. But what about the women?
Of those specific lists, only 3 out of 25, 1 out of 20, and 0 out of 10 authors are female. In a collection of 55 books, that’s just 4 women travel writers represented.
