We have many more active female members today than we did, say, a year ago. But, indeed, the active membership is overwhelmingly male. I believe that the reason is simple: the forums and subjects here are gadget/techie-oriented and do not appeal to many women.

I've noticed this in the classes I teach. The are split fairly equally, male/female. However, when the class discussion turns to equipment the women tend to participate less. Discussions about composition, form, lighting etc. have good participation from both sexes, but the women's questions tend to be more probing and inquisitive. The men ask more bluntly, How do I achieve this look or effect? Women tend to want to know the why's and how's.

I've had several classes that were all female. Let me tell you, what a challenge. Maintaining control is very difficult. Its much easier to digress and get off subject. I end up teaching something entirely different than my lesson.

Hey Now....

Got married 4 years ago to a man 12 years my junior (any good 'cradle robber' jokes?), had a baby almost 2 years ago, will be 42 in January (constantly mistaken for late 20's. You tell me... "http://fatcatmedia.biz/aboutus" ..on the left). Come on.... be brave... post photos!!! Numbers don't matter it's what's between the ears...

Life is gets STARTED at 40 for all you yunguns' out there. Go William! Jeff! and the over 40 gang :-)

Hey Ken... about the "techy" comment...I think you are right. Most gals don't seem too interested. But for those of us who grew up in a house full of engineers... man tech info is GREAT! I'd much rather read a spec sheet or wiring diagram than a novel. Gadgets are THE BOMB. (I love powertools and john boats too.)

It's not Polite to ask a lady her age.

But I was born in the "summer of love" and graduated from high school in a very "Orwellian" time.

that would be old enough to know better.

I'm 20. I just wanted to say this is an extremely helpful site, especially for us younger and less experienced people. I have learned a great deal of information that would've taken a whole lot of learning from mistakes and messing with settings thanks to this forum. Thanks again to whoever was involved in creating these forums.

Let me help pushing that average a little higher:

I'm 49 1/2.
Curious fact: the hair I used to have on top is starting to use shortcuts down through my nose and ears...
