I'd suggest you to look at the fundamental inequality of program like this in terms of being a temporary design to jumpstart a more even gender ratio. Having women involved will help other women stay involved, and changes the basic social dynamics that appear to keep women out as things would stand without a program like this.

So it's a temporary measure to fix a problem we necessarily do not know to fix in any other way, and it's evidently working. So chill?

My forecast, looking at the current college enrolment sex ratios, is that the GNOME PR team is anticipating at least a few decades of employment before they can announce their program "worked".

It's probably Sunday Lunch Wine Effect, but I couldn't parse your sentence.

PR guys will be substituted by PR women?
It will take a long time for more women in GNOME?
What are the college sex enrollment ratios?

I'm at a loss here.
