Female Attendance at Meetup meetings

Members nimen hao,
Although attendance at our meetings has generally been good, I've noticed over the past few months that there aren't as many females showing up compared to the period before. My ties with the Vancouver Mandarin Chinese meetup group and its predecessor go back to July, 2004, and I can assure you we have historically had a good gender balance. I see this as a bit of a social problem if there's something we organizers are doing that discourages females from attending. I'd like to hear from our female members -- is there something in our way of doing things that is not appealing to you? Your opinion would be more than welcome.
