That suggests some interesting logical branches. Let's say, for instance it is a reality that most jobs on the hands-on side of the music business (not in a #metoo way) are men and then suggest that's not actually a problem.
What is it that the women are doing at the same time and why is it (is it?) less attractive to men than discussing old synths and knob twiddling (not in a #metoo way).
I've struggled with the idea that cooking was either lowly women's work or, alternatively, a niche for angry artistic men because the town I grew up in was famous for the fact that men did most of the daily cooking. 25 miles down the road was different and there were all kinds of assumptions that were completely alien to me.
There is a corresponding assumption in this thread that women should want to do this, which may or may not be the case but it shouldn't be taken for granted.
Maybe all this is a waste of precious time and we should be doing something more important.
