Thanks for your initiative. It is welcome.

However your numbers are a bit off. I just checked the mailman admin
interface and mailman tells me there are 1104 members in total. Your
number of 570 is roughly 50% off.

There is of course no way to classify it by gender as mailman doesn't
ask this information. So no idea how you figured out the number of
ladies and the recruiters. Would be useful to know.

I suggest to create a survey for this at a say like surveymonkey or
surveyreport and send the survey to the mailing list, with these
questions. That would be the best way to collect your data.

Let the admins know if we can help in some way.
