Apologies for inflicting a ‘gender studies’-style question on you on this fine Thursday morning, but it occurred to me recently that there are very few regular female voices on this otherwise fabulous forum.
Does it matter? Perhaps not. But I wonder why this might be the case. I got a couple theories, but not really sure whether they are off the mark. In any case, it seems to me that as the enjoyment of good wine is not, in my experience, a male-only activity the paucity of women in the community (or at least those who actively post) is glaring.
I know that there had been some discussion about this very early on, when the forum just started – but now that this feels like a well-established virtual space, a sort of home-from-home in which to share our love of the grapy stuff, it would be nice to revisit it.
