At Stella, we believe that quality research plays a crucial role in driving systemic change.
Through our range of research work, we seek to tell a story about the state of gender equality in Australian literature, and hold the sector to account into the future.
Explore the findings of our long-running Stella Count initiative below, as well as a range of other research projects.
The Stella Count is Australia’s leading statistical analysis of gender bias in the field of book reviewing in Australia. Begun in 2012, it collects and interprets data on the gender of authors and reviewers, length of review, and genre of books reviewed.
Explore our findings over the last decade, and help us hold the literary sector to account on providing equal representation for women writers.
