A serious complication to our putting a specific number on this in a data-based way is that our concept of membership is vague and largely informal.
Regular dues-payers is probably the closest we have but that is also explicitly not a membership requirement in itself and there are notable exceptions that make it clearly incorrect strictly speaking.
People with rfid door access might also work with similar caveats.

Forwarding this to sudoroom in oakland, who also seem to have a fairly good F/M ratio - not 50/50, but better than I've seen in most techie fields. And of course HackerMoms in Berkeley is completely women-run as well.

Hey, Dorks, we're having a discussion about gender diversity in the makerspace and I'm hearing from many east coast spaces that they're about 90/10 Male to Female ratio. Coming from the west coast I don't know if we truly had a higher percentage or not but it sure seemed so. Just so I have some rough numbers, what would some of you who are members of groups like SRL, NIMBY, Crucible, Ship Yard, Noisebridge, and especially the Flaming Lotus Girls. I seem to remember a lot of female participation and leadership. Any guesses?
