In August 2009, Belieu cofounded the national feminist organization VIDA: Women In Literary Arts, notable for its influential annual survey of the rates of publication between male and female authors. This survey is known as The Count. VIDA's much publicized Count has been highly influential in addressing sweeping gender bias in contemporary American literary publishing.
