Mises Wiki essays may sometimes contain opinions that are not widely accepted by Austrian school thinkers, but nonetheless reside on the site to help stimulate critical thinking, constructive dialog, and an open-minded process of creative problem-solving furthering the growth of the body of Austrian school thought.

I thought the article was pretty lame. Even if women don't officially join libertarian organizations as much as men do, it doesn't mean they don't contribute to the cause. Margit von Mises wasn't listed as an author of Human Action, but she was the one who tapped out on the typewriter the draft that went to the publisher. It's specialization and division of labor in action, making use of comparative advantage. If anything, women are often being better libertarians by doing what's best for the cause even if they don't get the glory. See Miscellany:Women.
