Female-free speaker list causes PHP show to collapse when diversity-oriented devs jump ship

Ridiculous

So the conference made an open call for papers, to which anyone was free to submit, and only one woman submitted a proposal...

How is this the conference organisers fault? Clearly not many women were interested in giving a talk there, and the one that was had recently given the same talk elsewhere. If you don't like it, why not encourage girls to get into technology at a young age instead of causing hassle for people who have no say in the matter.
