"She has expressed concern that boys are not inclined to read books that have a lead girl."

Did she express this as a feeling on her part, or an assertion? Either way did she offer any substantiation (I'm not looking for peer-reviewed studies here, but a bit of understanding would help). I am curious because this strikes me as possibly "anecdotal evidence", which isn't.

Perhaps the previous concern that children weren't reading at all has been superceded?
