well, this might explain why you couldn’t get any traction for WATW, on “feminist” sites.
Since this is my favorite women’s website, that Bust headline clearly doesn’t apply to me.
The article just says the money flows to the men at the top (which isn’t a good thing), but I don’t think it suggests they have total creative control. HelloGiggles is one of the sites mentioned, but they still publish articles like this:
And The Mary Sue posts articles about awful female representation in film all the time. So it’s still a mystery to me why they wouldn’t jump on WATW as something to write about.
he who controls the money ultimately controls the content. <>
Yes, but my point is that so far these male-owned websites aren’t really squelching topics that are similar to WATW. (And just because an owner is male doesn’t mean he’s against such topics.) So that can’t be the reason WATW isn’t getting traction.
