Poll results in! See which gender writes better.

While political polls revealed final American voting counts last night, here’s another worthy poll result for writers:  Who wins in the writing lineup between men and women?

The world’s “best grammar checker,” Grammarly, conducted a study with 3,000+ participants to settle the matter. Nick at Grammarly reached out to me with their results in the infographic below and offered to donate to a charity promoting literacy when I shared it. (Um, sweet.) Besides, it’s favorable to my gender. How can I not share that?

What do you think about these results?

  1. What a fascinating article! Thanks for sharing. This seemed to reveal as much about men and women in general as it did about writing. But I must admit, when I’m reading, I don’t pay attention to whether a man or woman has written the book. Rather, I pay attention to how much I enjoy the writing.
