Hmm …

… 7 Female Beat Writers To Read Instead Of Jack Kerouac. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

 Maybe I'm missing something, but I count four women who can be called Beat writers — Joanne Kyger, Diane Di Prima, Carolyn Cassady, and Joyce Johnson. Brenda Knight was born in 1958, so although she has written about the Beats, she can hardly be said to have been one of them. I also count six books.
