Re: Attracting / keeping women members at a dojo

Luc, you're preaching to the choir -- the women in this thread are the ones who ARE training.

Someone specifically wanted to know what we thought might bring other women in (I interpreted this as women who have not yet discovered the wonders of aikido), and pondered the question of why some dojos have lots of women and others don't, so some of us are just trying to brainstorm.

FWIW -- I am pretty violently opposed to quotas or anything of that sort, so I hope nothing I said seemed to suggest otherwise. For the record, quotas, double standards, politics, etc, are evil slimy things that I want nothing to do with, OK?
