Even if women are part of the planning they sometimes leave women out. I helped teach a class on artists with other women, and the artists we were teaching the kids were 90% men. This was a course developed by a woman, and taught be women volunteers. When I suggested we add more women artists to the lesson, I was told by one of the women that there "just weren't that many." This woman is obviously a product of American public schools, which utilize notoriously sexist textbooks.
