Events for Girls
« on: 11.09.2010, 14:10:41 »

I saw that somewhere and had to chuckle. It's a nice touch, but as far as I saw, about 95% of the attendees were male and a similar proportion seemed to be gay. Perhaps an evening for straight people? :P

Yes, your estimation is almost correct ... it's 90% male and 10% female. Which I think is a pity. It's even a 2% decline from last year. The point was, making EF at least a little bit more attractive for the female population. We really want a higher female attendance. I see no reason why we should be such a male dominated convention.

So, if anyone has any good ideas how to make the con (and the fandom in itself) more attractive to women ... I'm all ears :)


From what i personally see throughout the fur fandom is most females are Artist, Including myself.
Yet im not sure why there are so few.
Although for the fur ball run this year there were plenty more girls than the last year! As we had the lovley pinky, shema, Pickle and shadow sani.

I know the blotch girls are having a few brops waiting on the US.

As fr a little girly get together (pointing out im relay not a girly girl at all) perhaps something artistic would be nice.
For me it i would have to try and not be shy though, for some reson im very worried about acting like a Muppet in front of others. Yet...i think i do it anyways :S Do'h.


silly Ideas for Ladies nights:

  • Simple Girlfur group meet
  • Ladie's Dinner party (In the Hotel or for thin wallets there's quite a few lovely restaurants round town)
  • girly Ice cream classic (sorry...but i do love my girly movie nights with Ben & jerry's "cookie dough")
  • Go to the Zoo
  • Game session (take over the game room for a bit and le the girls have some fun)


Just a thought, probably rubbish but then i'v not had my coffee yet. kinda went for the things i normally go with my girly friends back home in the UK.

Hmm maybe we could organise that for next year? Try to attract a few more females? Someone feel free to poke me about ths in ½ year time and I'll see what I can do, or even better, make something yourself.
