This lack of women gets quite ridiculous, when the AfD tries to mobilise for a "Women's March":

Better soft skills helped the women to follow the jobs, that's all. There can be no doubt about the condition precendent to the desired "reverse migration of women". The only alternative is to offer the lost men a better life elsewhere. Nobody cares about this problem.

There is a few additional mechanisms at work here:

While there is always exceptions, women in general tend to favor the save course of well-trodden paths above exciting alternatives, which might lead to challenging situations. You can see that by the amount of female workforce in all kinds of positions considered extremely safe, public sector most notably.

While they focus on well-being of their family and people in general, especially in this country they do not focus on the resources both consume today.
Due to our current economic cycle, they take the available amount of public budgets for granted and do not question taxation levels mostly.
Not surprisingly, a result they tend to close their eyes with respect to the economic impact of mass migration, hoping against hope it will go well.

Sadly, only first hand experience seems to change their mind, both with respect to public security and national wealth.
Only when a significant amount have felt the impact first hand (e.g. schools are not renovated or pensions are stuck vs inflation, because our government has already identified more worthy people to spend money on).

Bottom line: To women the concept of anticipating a nation's future based on the current events is often foreign.
That is primarily why they do not fall in love with the AfD at the same pace.

Far from "anticipating the nation's future" the AfD is even completely wrong about the current events.

Watching the video of these men's reaction to this racist Poggenburg shows that there has been a serious "Brain Drain" in Saxony. An influx of women would help, but what self-respecting woman would want to be with these losers?

Today they chant "Abschieben!" ; yesterday it was "Juden 'raus!"

Mass events of any kind do not reflect the intellectual super-class of a society. Look at thousands running into stadiums for football matches or assembling for events organized by unions or churches and you will not find any additional capability for self-awareness. There is always a tiny segment of organizers and a big herd of sheep.

When I see people believing into the incredible substance of "Wir schaffen das!" & "borders cannot be defended" or chanting "refugees welcome", I certainly expect no more thought given to it than when others want them deported.

I wrote about the attractiveness of the AfD to women in general, irrespective of mass assemblies.
