Surely, there's room for a few more.
No figures for Sweden?

The USA has at least five organisations promoting women in aviation and they have been around for decades. With all of the effort they put in to get more women in the pointy end, no US airline has more than 7% female pilots.

There are no barriers to entry for women wanting to fly in the USA and the airlines here have recruited women for 40 years.

With all of this effort the amount of female pilots cant break 10% at a US major.

Maybe, just maybe ladies dont really want to do it as much as men?

Was Little Napoleon leading International Men's Day?

International Men's Day 19 November 2019.

Where was Little Napoleon, singing the praises of his workforce, a substantial number being men?

Nothing not a peep..

Those organisations don’t control airline recruitment. I believe US major airline recruitment for a long time had been a bit of a closed shop. A lot of it dominated by ex military pilots who would recruit their buddies first and foremost.

With recent shortages this may be changing, it may be better to look at ratios in relation to younger and more recent demographics for a more accurate picture.

So when United ask what your "Women in Aviation" membership number is they are just messing around? You obviously know very little about these types of organisations so maybe do a bit more research before posting again.
