Since 1851, The New York Times has published thousands of obituaries: of heads of state, opera singers, the inventor of Stove Top stuffing and the namer of the Slinky. The vast majority chronicled the lives of men, mostly white ones; even in the last two years, just over one in five of our subjects were female.

Favorite tweet:

Since 1851, obituaries in @nytimes have been dominated by white men. Just 20% have been women.

Today we introduce Overlooked — a project to write the obituaries for the women who never got them, but should have.https://t.co/WMnfwxQ4mF

Obituary writing is more about life than death: the last word, a testament to a human contribution. Yet who gets remembered — and how — inherently involves judgment. To look back at the obituary archives can, therefore, be a stark lesson in how society valued various achievements and achievers. via Pocket
