Equal Gender Representation in the Histo-gaming Community?

While I sit here with my morning coffee and think back to the wonderful experiences of BROGFest from this past weekend and I realized we only had one female wargamer in attendance. Why is that? A number of factors could contribute to this situation, but I think it would be hard to pick just one…
