LXer: IT group to fight sexism

Published at LXer:

The launch of a forum for Australian women in open source coincides with a debate about discrimination in the industry, writes Sarah Stokely. Women working in open source IT suffer "overt hostility", according to new national group AussieChix. Founder Mary Gardiner says the group aims to encourage participation and combat discrimination with an online forum for "social and technical interaction". An amalgamation of several state-based LinuxChix groups, AussieChix was launched on March 8, International Women's Day, and arrives at a time when the open source industry is dogged by gender issues.
