> I think we have to solve the overall problem with women in Science and Engineering to solve Free Software's problem.
Cherry-picking the best case measurements, our female participation ratio is still 10x worse than for any other science/engineering field I can find statistics on.
Not 10%. 10 times. If we were only doing as badly as engineering as a whole then that would be *wonderful*. There's plenty of room for debate on why this is, but the numbers are what they are. It's a FOSS problem specifically. We own it.
