I'm on my way home from 2 conferences, #AOW2019 and @AutomotiveUI #AutoUI2019. There was one thing common to both conferences, namely both confs. had only female keynote speakers. e.g., @NilliLavie, @doc_ux, @NatashaMerat, @Sharonkparker, @dechurch.

Was this necessary?

#imho, Absolutely!
I observed young female students crowding the keynote speakers on several occasions, asking questions & deep in discussion. The enthusiasm was palpable.

Do we need this?

Take a closer look during Q&As.
Are the men or women more outspoken?

Until this disparity is rectified, we need to fuel more female enthusiasm for academic research.

If you're a woman and invited to participate, don't be modest, don't turn down the invite. You're not doing it for yourself. it's for the community.
