Hey Women! Comics! is a blog aimed at women who want to read comics but aren't sure where to start and, by extension, is also a great blog for guys like me who want to everyone reading comics. Recently they ran a survey on women's attitudes toward comics, both those who read comics and those who don't. They published the results this week and it makes very interesting reading.
HERE are the results of the survey from comics readers
HERE are the results from non-comics readers
HERE (and most interestingly I think) is "What we can learn from the Women & Comics Survey"
Check it out, its good stuff, and many of the conclusions drawn mirror my own feelings on how comics as a medium and as an industry can better promote itself.
