You’d Like To Attend The Web Summit, Lisbon, 2017?

Great! Ticket price for those with vaginas, 85 Euros
for those with penises, 850 Euros.

Hey Mike,
Thought I’d share my disappointment with you. I follow your work closely and am a big supporter! 
I just graduated University last year with 27k in debt. I believe networking and attending conferences is a great way for young graduates to get out into the market and advance one’s career. I was looking at the Web Summit event which is held in Lisbon this year, which has a ticket price of 850 Euros, or 85 Euros if you happen to be a womanhere. Last year they let women in for free, but most of the ones who claimed a free ticket didn’t go, so this year they’re giving them a 90% discount.
How is this in any way fair? I fail to see any logic in this differential pricing…

Thanks for your work.
All the best,
Maybe the men wishing to attend the event should claim they self-indentify as women?
