I personally don't have any objection, but I don't know how others
on this list feel.
However, this list gets very little traffic, so I don't know how
much response you'll get.
Also, if you're looking for women in the Social Sciences, although
Economics is, technically speaking, a social science, it is the most
mathematical of them and I wouldn't be surprised if women in economics
have more in common with women in Sci/Math/Eng than with women in
Hum/Soc Sci. I suspect that Finance is even more so.
It is an interesting research project. I read somewhere that one
thing that American women engineers almost all have in common is
this: their fathers were engineers (or mothers, but there were
so few women engineers in the past that there just weren't very
many mother engineers).
