My fusing classes are out numbered 4 to 1, but my blowing tends to be more evenly split. I remember being outnumbered all through college as well. It does seem that once you're out of education the numbers tilt toward the men.

This tends to be more of a fabrication and tech site, of which I've seen almost no women doing. That would help explain some of the lack on posting. Since colleges don't really teach tech, where there could be a lead to a more even dissemination of knowledge, there is some other buffer in the way.

While the torch scene seems to be over run by a lot of dude bros, there are some truly kick ass women in that field right now. Also, there is no denying the skills brought to blowing by Nancy and Karen. But again, that is all about glass talent, and not what most of this site is centered around.
