Grrls-only -- A women-only list for general discussion (mostly) related to Linux.


About Grrls-only
English (USA)

Grrls-only is a women-only list for general purpose discussion related to Linux. Grrls-only is a good place to find female mentors and role models in the Linux field, ask technical questions you're afraid to ask anywhere else, and generally provide that "I'm not the only one!" feeling. If you are female, interested in Linux, and looking for a peer group, grrls-only might be the answer.

On-topic subjects are anything to do with women and / or Linux. Also on-topic are discussions that you would not want to have on a list with men subscribed. However, keep in mind that this is a Linux list and most discussion should be related to Linux in some way.

The goal of this list is to provide a friendly environment to encourage women interested in Linux. Part of that friendly environment is a no-tolerance policy for flames (personal attacks) and trolls (posts intended to create controversy for its own sake). Flames are inappropriate whether they are sent to the entire list or to individual list members. If you are being flamed off-list, the list administrators would appreciate having the message forwarded to them. List members who break the no-flames, no-trolls policy will be unsubscribed. You should also read the LinuxChix Policy FAQ before posting to this list.

Discussion may get heated or just busy on occasion and the volume of mail sent may spike. If you find it overwhelming, you might want to wait a week and try again when things have calmed down (you can temporarily disable your subscription), or try one of our other mailing lists.

You must be female to join this list. If the answer to "What gender are you?" is more complicated than "Male" or "Female," it's up to you to decide if this list is appropriate for you or not. Remember, the point of this list to provide a female-friendly and female-only environment where women can discuss experiences common to being a woman within modern-day society.
