    Dear Ann,
    Other than the one instance there was a responsive sort of blog on another person’s site, does *anyone* from these journals or conferences ever respond to your posts on this topic?
    It is discouraging when entire volumes include no women authors, but I am curious if anyone who was involved in the producing the journal or conference ever offers a response to you.
    Best,
    Elizabeth

    Yes but usually via e-mail and with great anger and defensiveness.
