MySQL and Women (or where are all the women?)

Birds of a Feather
There are just not enough women working on the technology side of tech. The media keeps shouting that a diverse work place is good for all and data scientists say the data proves this. Then why aren't there more women in MySQL? Where are the women at the MySQL conferences? Sure the number of women attending is increasing but not so the number of women speakers. Why do some companies have so many more women at many different levels than others? How can we help change this so that more women want to work with MySQL? Lets get a lively discussion on how to work on this problem in specifics. This will be an open forum.
