There obviously is a big change in the ratio after
college and I think it probably has something to
do with the fact that women start having babies and
their priorities are with their children/families?


As apposed to what? Don't the father's priorities change as well "after
women start having babies" and aren't men just as focused on
children/families when the baby arrives.....?????

My wife is a dentist....WE have two daughters...and she's still a practicing
dentist. Why would this be any different for a woman musician?

Shame on you Sue ;-)
