Letter: Media wars

Sir: The "staggeringly masculine" New Statesman (Media, 16 March) is denounced by Natasha Walter for, in one recent issue, a "pathetic" 3 women contributors out of 23 (13.04 per cent). We should do better and we often do. Can The Independent improve on 15 female by-lines out of 122 (12.29 per cent) in the same issue as Ms Walter writes?
