If the discussion goes on I would like to join, if you agree.
We had a similar discussion in our french network Internum few days ago
Internum is a network of people woking digital art and culture : www.internum.fr
So we spoke about this cause french ministry of culture asks about gender statistics in this field
an we are saying things that are close the topics that Roger propose.
Diversity can be larger than gender equality.
Diversity into global age is a very interesting way to approach this subject.
