I under stand what you mean about the guys hanging around at the back. Maybe one compromise, would have been to only have 1 or 2 at a time come up. Tell the organizers to inform the workshop participents that the guys who helped put it in motion just want to be able to see the fruits of their l labours. amd they want to see women doing the same things they do is just awesome to them. I'm tired that might not have made sense.
