This should interest anyone who cares about making the
computer field more welcoming for women.


Most

Linux HOWTO documents

(fabulous volunteer contributions) are technical tracts on the order of "Root
over nfs clients & server HOWTO" or "HOWTO Use a Compaq
Remote Insight Lights Out Edition for a Headless, Remote
Linux Installation" (actual titles!). It's a bold step
to put out this social commentary, a collaborative
effort put together by many women.


The level of information given may seem depressing low, but
I trust that the authors have proven it necessary.


What else is being done to promote professional use of computers by women?
