This chapter aims to raise awareness on women OSGeo members' activity.

It is not meant to be a women only club. This will lead to discrimination, and that's exactly what we must avoid, and what Chris and Simon pointed out. On the opposite, it aims to be a group where women can find guidance to start contributing with OSGeo projects.
