I can go through the active members one by one. The membership is always in flux but I regularly see women applying for it and occasionally I see postings but almost always in an "I want to buy/sell" mode. Roseanna periodically posts observations about the trade. She's been around a long time.

Scott Benefield noted this back when he wrote an article on the color classes. I think in the four I taught back in Santa Fe, two had one woman each. The class here had three as I recall and they were women with businesses that had been around quite a while. Smart, involved, good insights and worked well with the larger groups in all cases. No mansplaining I can recall. If anything it was the opposite from one woman in the second class.

Not many in the trade shows either actually.

I think that the response to the question here from all these women is overwhelming.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
