    I am a former Michigan articles editor. The board noticed the absence of women in this symposium and the previous one and formed a committee to address the issue. It is a tricky problem for the student board, as symposium members are usually proposed by a faculty member, but going forward, MLR plans to raise the issue of gender balance with symposium invites. In terms of regular articles, I think any gender bias comes in with how the articles are framed, with men more likely to frame their articles as “bigger” and more important than women. This is something we noticed our year, and tried to correct for it when reading (because the men were exaggerating, of course). We also flagged it as an issue for subsequent articles offices.
