It’s also worth noting that this statement in the Google Manifesto is blatantly wrong when it comes to the arts. In the visual arts, men and women earn MFA degrees at roughly the same rate, but art made by women makes up only 3%-5% of the major permanent collections in the US. Likewise in music, major orchestras have men:women ratios that vary from 3:2 all the way to 13:1. And in literature, books that get reviewed are written by men at a ratio that varies from 11:6 (about 2:1) to 37:13 (about 3:1). Men earn much more respect (and money) in the arts industries compared to women, even though the Google Manifesto claims that arts and aesthetics are the areas where women are stronger than men.
