    @caitling I think there are lots of reasons why women don't participate in FOSS projects (and each reason will be unique to that individual). I think we need to start looking forward to find new ways to encourage women into being comfortable using software instead of focusing on where the problems have been in the past. For example: there are lots of jobs available now to work on open source projects. It's no longer just a hobby!!

  • Fabulous! Thank you so much for pulling this all together in such a compelling and witty way.



    Seems like another reason women may not participate in open source projects as much is simply the time -- after work, there's child care and everything else -- so pro bono work is less possible. Are there ways to participate in smaller chunks that don't require hours at a stretch?

  • I've seen Emma give this talk twice, and it is fantastic. Finally, a call to action for all those who want to see the World Domination of Open Source, and a path forward to increasing the number of women who are active in our communities.
