I hate to break it to you all, but it is actually 12.6%. Of course, I
factored in all the androgynous names such as "Chris" and "Terry" as
gentleman, rather than ladies, so the percentage could be off by a bit...

I wouldn't say that this is a reflection of anyone who considers his or
herself "extropian," but a reflection of those willing (or able) to put
their money where their minds are. Amara's estimate is probably closer to
being correct for extropians as a whole. In my recollection, past
conferences have had roughly 1/3 of the audience and speakers as female,
for what it's worth.
