    According to the article (I haven’t checked the actual survey data):
    ‘Female readers, which comprised about 8% of the readership in the last benchmark’s available from two decades ago, consisted of 7% of the survey.’
    Surely 1% will be well within the margin of error, so it would be more correct to say ‘proportion of female readers holds steady over two decades’ than ‘loses female readers’?
