The Eloquent Woman

when looking at the Web 2.0 Only 20 of the 200 scheduled speakers were women; among keynote speakers, just two of the 20 were women. In addition to the dearth of female speakers on the program, she noted that many women speakers had not yet filled out their profiles on the meeting web site , but all of the male speakers had done so.
