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.

What's new

Everyone is free to post on the mailing list, and subscribe - good ideas are gender independent. The mailing list is open also to non-subscribers.

FOSS4G 2010 has been a speedup in live conversations about the topic, and more is flowing on Discuss and Women mailing lists.
