Margie and Karin, When I was involved with the Zen Center of Los Angeles in the late 60's there were a lot of women. I'd estimate about 50:50. Also as I'm sure you both know zen literature is full of references to enlightened women, although I must confess that most of the stories focus on men.
Good luck on your dialogs...Bill!

There aren't many zen women, at least not in my experience. I have some ideas about why this is, but I don't think it's appropriate to post it yet. But I just wanted to let you know I'm here if you'd like to discuss zen with a woman.
