Who is Reviewing Books of Poetry by Canadian Women?

Natalie Zed is starting to keep score, and isn't impressed:
It occurred to me that it had been a rather long time since I read a review of a book of poetry by a woman in The National Post, and so I called up the column in question and counted. Only 2 of the 14 books of poetry that The National Post has reviewed in the last year and a half were written by women. 2 in 14. I was expecting some discrepancy, from what I had just passively noticed, but nothing like this.

A little number crunching, long lists, but rather short on analysis or thoughtfulness. I'm not impressed either.
