Thanks for creating this blog...Here at UofA, we're trying to redress the increase in women's enrollment. This year UofA's Festival of Ideas celebrates white men for the most part....two out of the ten events feature women speakers.
Drop us a line! We're angling for vigorous commentary, but we will cut loose any vitriol dragged up from the depths.
