Couldn't agree more about the gender balance, but where's the 'forum'  
part? The brochure makes no mention of it. As for 'high-priced' - no,  
not really. It's very cheap for such an outing, but there are  
different demographics that can be appealed to with different prices  
(and different speakers).
