Here's a quote I heard from a colleague that was said by an agent who handles writers:
When looking at representing a male or female writer who are both the same age and have equal talent the agent said that he or she would take the man every time.
Their careers last longer, They climb faster, they don't get sidetracked (i.e. having kids) and you can sell a man better.
