She cites a bunch of numbers including, "In six years, 126 James Beard Awards have been given out. 22 of them have gone to women." She goes on: "I think the press have created a vicious cycle where women ... get ignored by the press, and the more they get ignored the more they get left off nomination lists." [Dirt Candy]
