OK, really, where are the women?

Lots of MinnPost-related talk yesterday and today about men and women — writingreading, joining book clubs, falling in love.

What do you make of this:

The first nine people who’ve answered the prelim questions for Trivia Battle of the MinnPost Brains are Paul, Brad, Marshall, Joe, 2 Johns, 2 Mikes and a Matt.

Maybe all the female brains are too busy during the week — working, carpooling, nurturing relationships and going to book clubs.

If that’s true, we’ll expect a slew of responses from women over the weekend.    

Hmmm. Just noodling.

Monday update: Finally, a small step toward gender balance. Applicants for MinnPost members team: 10 men, 1 woman. Thank you Betsy.

Tuesday update: 10 men, 3 women.

Reminders: Application deadline Oct. 24. Members team open to everyone who has donated at least $50 to MinnPost in 2009.

May the best brains win.

    Could the paucity of women be linked to the fact that women, on the whole,are paid less than men and there is a $50 charge for this opportunity??
