Suggested meeting topic: d-women advocacy, rights and not-so-rights

A possible topic for the upcoming IRC #debian-women meeting (16 Jan, 0500
UTC, don't miss it!) has been suggested in IRC.  It seemed a good idea to
suggest it to the wider list.

One of the areas that must be approached with some degree of care is the
manner in which debian-women presents itself to the larger community, both
Debian and elsewhere.  In many ways, Debian is a very conservative
organisation, and, as has been seen in the past, doesn't always take kindly
to people challenging the established order.

The meeting would attempt to get some sort of consensus about the ways in
which the d-w project might constructively present itself to people outside
these hallowed virtual walls.  Things to consider include what we say, how
we say it, when to go for the jugular, and when to be a little more

The intent is not to develop some hard and fast "code of practice", but
rather just to get a feel for how people think that d-w could most
effectively communicate it's goals and intentions to the wider world.

So, in the opinions of the assembled multitudes, is this a topic that:

a) is appropriate for a #d-women meeting; and

b) people would be *interested* in discussing at a #d-women meeting?
