Where are all the women?!

For the nth time in my life, I attended a meeting of over 20 people but with just 1 female member.

My first project had several meetings consisting of several male members but just one female member. But then, the whole team consisted of only one female member!! And today again, there was a meeting with just one female member in a room full of male associates. It made me wonder what it always make me wonder.

Either its a male dominated society or I am in a female-deprived projects' area!

In each of these meetings, I truly like the way each of these female associates respond to and articulate their thoughts and opinions clearly, albeit outnumbered in gender. Its really good to see that they do not get outweighed by the situation and feel complex about it, because, in reality, they are the ones who are really admired and respected by the male counterparts.

Question: How would I feel if I were to be in a meeting consisting of only female associates?!
