My friend just sent me this interesting article on the usage of "Ladies" for events versus "Women." Now that it has been pointed out to me, it does seem sort of anachronistic to use ladies. Especially since there is no corresponding "Gentlemen" title.

Thoughts?

ETA: or should we just go "bros" and "shorties."
