The reason we have women's groups is because representation for women is lacking and our voices are so often drowned out by men's. I feel like it is totally inappropriate for a man to be the figure head for a women's group that exists because we live in a society where women are not elected leaders and don't have the opportunity to represent themselves equally. It is not discrimination when the playing field is unequal. The fact that he can't see that only further illustrates how inappropriate he is for this role. Women should represent women.
