"Simply talking about what women are doing all over the world
creates an atmosphere of acceptance, encouraging more women to try
contributing, no matter where they are located or what their
situation is. Our goal is to normalize the experience of having
women on open source projects". This issue of OSBR is a powerful
effort to do just that.
"This article provides a glance at women in open source
internationally. It is by no means comprehensive and is based
solely on a random sampling of women who are currently
contributing. The goal of this article is to give you a sense of
the breadth and depth of women contributing to open source."
