This study was conducted as part of "Hack Day" at the 223rd meeting of the American Astronomical Society (January 2014) in Washington DC. The report presents the results of an informal survey investigating the number of questions asked by men and women at astronomy conferences. We looked at the number of questions asked overall, and also investigated if there were any differences in the percentage of questions asked by men and women depending on the gender of the speaker and on the gender of the chair.
