  1. very disappointed Echo, that your photograps are 99% male????? I wasn’t there but surely the gender balance wasn’t THAT weighted in reality?

  2. Agree with the comment about too few women represented in these pics.
    But of the women pictured – Clem Ford asked people to not share photos of her child due to the abuse she consistently cops from the MRA’s.

  3. Photo montage definitely not representative of gender on panels. Very poor choice and very disappointing that the reportage shows such gender bias

  4. Why is every photograph of a white male??? Sorry, Echo, disappointing montage and not representative of the true diversity of writers.
