Issues -- Linuxchix list for discussion of issues related to women, linux, and the world.


About Issues
English (USA)

The issues list is a place for discussion about the issues related to linuxchix. These could be issues faced by women in high tech fields. It could be issues related to copyright and intellectual property. It could be issues related to getting taken seriously at schools. It could be issues related to... well, you get the idea.

Although the scope of topics isn't as broad as on grrltalk, there are still quite a few things that can be discussed here. Just avoid talking about your cats. :)

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.
