Linux and Women!

Have you ever thought about the absence of girls as Linux users? Have you seen any girl struggling with failed dependencies of a rpm package? Can’t they struggle? or this is just a result of their lack of interest in computation in general?

I found the point discussed here and they have pointed out few reasons for their lack of interest(with results based on few researches) .

  • Women are less confident
  • Women have fewer opportunities for friendship or mentoring
  • Women are discouraged from an early age
  • Computing perceived as non-social
  • Lack of female role models
  • Life-work balance more important to women

Do you agree? How can we promote  Linux to women ? 😉
