The Daily Mail ran a story today about how women were making sexism vanish in a male dominated industy. They spoke to Louise Andrée Douglas, Katherine Mills, Romany Romany, Kerry Scorah and Catherine Marks about their career in magic.
Some of the readers comments included:
Not really news. If less that 10% of magicians are women then maybe women don’t want to be magicians?
Err the assistant being attractive was part of the magic trick to help distract the audience. Not some weird sexist thing.
When did anyone say a woman couldn’t be a magician?
The printed version of the issue featured Kerry Scorah and Louise Andree Douglas in the banner of the front page.

Hey presto! Mysterious things are going on in the world of magic. It’s been more than 25 years since the Magic Circle admitted women, and after years of sexism, often as the bikini-clad ‘glamorous assistant’ who’s sawn in half, women are making their names as professional magicians.
