SEX RATIOS AMONGST THE TRADITIONS AND CONVENTIONS
ALL RATIOS ARE MALE/FEMALE
Akashic Brothers--- 4/3
Celestial Chorus--- 2/1
Cult of Ecstasy--- 3/4
Order of Hermes--- 3/1
Sons of Ether--- 4/1
Virtual Adepts--- 3/1
Iteration X--- 1/1
New World Order--- 3/1
Void Engineers--- 3/2
Hollow Ones--- 2/3
Other Orphans--- 1/2
Notes on the numbers: the female bias with Orphans reflects the facts that males get recruited into Tradtions and Conventions more often, plus females the world over are given fewer opportunities, on average.
The Void Engineers would be even except for the presence of the Void Marines.
While the NWO’s philosophy is theoretically egalitarian, there is a strong male dominance than pervades the upper echelons.
The African Dreamspeakers are slightly female-biased, most other locations carry a male bias.
having just re-read the NWO sourcebook, it occurs to me that the male:female ratio is at least skewed there. on the surface (ie, to traditionalists), the NWO seems to be mostly MiBs, but it's not. the other two methodologies (Servants of the Ivory Tower and Watchers, in case it slips your mind as you read this) are not mostly male. while the Servants share to some degree the bias of general academia and administration, there are *many* female Servants, they just tend to get slightly worse jobs and are often pink collar. as far as the Watchers go, they are media-centric, so a great many females rise high- in media work, it's your artistry and social skills that cause you to rise, and there is no gender or sex bias there. therefore the NWO as a whole seems to actually be rather well balanced, not 3:1 at all. more like 1:1.

And you are welcome to play them as such. See the argument in previous comments for and against.

You mean in media jobs in North America? Ah hahahaha... I wish. Man, that would be nice. Next time you watch a movie on DVD, check out the names in the credit roll. Or, pick up a copy of Vanity Fair or National Geographic and turn to the masthead.
Are there females? Certainly. Are there as many as males? Like I said, I wish.
But that is the pool the NWO has to pull from, so...
Thank you for the comment.
there're two places where i think your perception of NWO and media are a bit off. basically, unlike the entirety of media, the NWO is only a few people. so while there may be many many people involved in any given media group or artwork, only a few would be NWO. out of all the people working on a movie, the NWO might only need 1-3 involved.. besides which, you're forgetting the many many media workers who aren't at big firms. the underground media is just as important, and the NWO are of course spread out into it too.
