A recent readers poll at PAXsims found that 99% of our readers were male, which led to this discussion (primarily about expanding the pool of women able to contribute to professional wargaming in the national security community):

Which in turn led to this post on women and hobby wargaming:

Interesting divergence. Among those who use wargames as part of their professional toolkit--military planners, defence and intelligence analysts, educators, and so forth—there is virtually universal support for expanding the number of women involved.

Among hobby gamers the issue is--for reasons I can't fathom--much more controversial.
