Gender Avenger App Lets You Shame SXSW Panels With no Women

South By SouthWest attendees have a new tool to encourage greater diversity in panels and events. Gender Avenger, an organization seeking to raise awareness about gender diversity, has created an app called GA Tally that allows people to publicly call out panels and events where women are underrepresented. Enter the hashtag for the event, conference or panel, the number of men and the number of women and the app generates a pie chart which can be embedded to share online. The group has also used the app to call out publications like the New Yorker for not including more women in its coverage.
