Researchers conducted an experiment where they showed participants five paintings by women and five paintings by men. Nothing high end, nothing too famous. Participants were asked to guess the gender of the artist just by looking at a painting. No names, no provenance. Participants couldn't. As the researchers concluded: "Women's art appears to sell for less because it is made by women."
In late July, an investigation by an Australian newspaper revealed that anyone who attempted to report a sexual crime between February 2016 and March 2018 via an email listed on the Western Australia Police website were sending highly sensitive reports to a ghost address not monitored by police. Worse, potentially thousands of highly sensitive emails were deleted as soon as they were sent to police for at least two years - if not more.
