Hall of Shame | TechCrunch's Disrupt SF 2014

TechCrunch's Disrupt SF 2014, September 8–10, 2014, features 74 speakers, only 12 of whom are women. Their website says: "TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the most anticipated technology conferences of the year. Join us at this iconic startup and thought leadership event…" We're not sure what they're disrupting, but they're certainly not doing anything to challenge the Silicon Valley old boys' club with only 14% women speakers.

(Although, we do like that they have a prominently posted anti-harassment policy that links to the Geek Feminism conference anti-harassment policy.)
