Is the clubbing industry sexist?

There are very few women working in the clubbing industry. Is this because the jobs are more appealing to men than women?

Or perhaps it's down to the built in sexism in this ego driven game.

I have been talking to a woman promoter this week. She seems convinced it's the latter. Emphatically telling me she has to put up with blokes giving her:
"bullshit to try and get a quick jump and a struggle trying to get people to take me seriously"
Not a good sign.

So here is my question to the girls (and boys) of clubland. Do women get less of a chance in the industry, or do they just not want the jobs in the first place?
