Individuals, groups or companies doing outreach to women involved in or interested in open source software often find it hard to contact women in large numbers. This page has some suggestions for publicity venues with a large number of women readers.

LinuxChixEdit

LinuxChix has a large, majority-women subscriber base interested in open source broadly. You can contact their members using these mechanisms:

  • email their announce list for events, scholarships, and similar offerings for women
  • email their jobposts list with postings of paying jobs open for application

The Ada InitiativeEdit

The Ada Initiative publish a calendar of events of interest to their community, and will often post about events, scholarships and similar to their blog.

Email share@adainitiative.org with details of what you want to share.
