... but this article is not dealing with any discrimination, and the it clearly indicates that women are much more involved in OSS than in proprietary software.
The linked-to article says just the opposite: "they also discussed some negative aspects for the open source community's women, who reportedly have higher representation in the proprietary software world." (Emphasis mine.) So this states that women are less involved in OSS.
This matches my experience -- I've worked with one or more female programmers at all of my day jobs, but very rarely on OSS projects.
