Call for a more gender equal Nobel prize

On the Nobel day when prizes are delivered to prize winners, a total of 44 writers, academics, politicians, journalists and others call for a more gender equal Nobel prize by two concrete means: 1) setting up a council that will look at women with merits worth considering for the Nobel Prize, and 2) a call to include an equal number of women and men in the invitation letters going out to sets of learning around the world.

This might be one way of countering the homosocial reproduction that appear currently at play in the Nobel prize nominations.
