I prefer to speak to an all-male than an all-female American group. (In Ukraine it would be the opposite).
Men feel freer. They ask more questions, they participate in banter and rousting before and after the event, and they are not afraid of making a bad impression. They don’t respond to what I say on an emotional level, and it always exhausts me when strangers start to emote around me. They are also a lot more respectful to a female speaker. They refuse to call me by my first name. The meeting is less organized and less structured.
It’s hilarious how different this would be in a Ukrainian audience. Which is obviously why I connect better with male audiences and students in the US.
I gave an identical talk to an all-female and an all-male group, and enjoyed the latter about 50 times more.
