The New Yorker Gender Tally is a project by Jessica Esch that looks at The New Yorker contributors by gender. Two sets of numbers are on all but the first and last TNY Gender Tally of a given year. Monthly totals are listed on top of each section in red. The bottom number in gray represents year-to-date tallies.  Women are always listed first. A third number is included for work by studios; collaborations between men and women; or her inability to confirm a person’s gender. Gender is determined by name and/or pronoun use.
