Women in the Olympics

I just learned some stuff. Women have competed in the Olympics since the 1920's, making up only 5% of the participants. This year, they are about 38% of the participants and the only event that doesn't have a women's counterpart is ski jumping. They felt it was bad for a woman's health. But, as long as they get it in by 2007, the 2010 Winter Olympics will probably have women's ski jump.
