I don't know why or when this change happened. And in my 4.5 years active, we never had one woman self-disaffiliate. Women may have depledged during the NM period every once in awhile, but once initiated, women didn't leave. It's truly disheartening to watch some days.
In any volunteer role I have ever had, I have had zero tolerance for the "omg I'm going to quit." It is usually a cry for attention/drama.

The last email I got that was an "I'm going to quit" email, I simply responded "Ok, the exit form is ____. If you'd like to discuss it email me at xxx."

Your chapter sisters can do the "omg pleaseeeee don't quit" dramatics that you so desire. I will not.
