I accept Mary Shipley’s invitation to ponder her question “Why is it there are so few FT letters by women?” (Letters, May 4)

If published, this will be my fourth letter in the FT. I identify as a male. I think there is a surplus of men of a certain age that are underemployed and seek relevance in matters of global business and politics.

They write letters to maintain a sense of importance. There may be women that fit this description as well but in my experience they, as a group, tend to find better uses for their time.
