Anyone is allowed to join this list and you are welcome if you share our goal of
wanting to increase the involvement of women in Debian.

About 60-70% of the people who are actively involved in Debian Women are men.
This sounds bad until you realise that about 99% of the people actively involved
in Debian are men.  So we do have a relatively high concentration of women here,
actually.  But there are still a lot of men who are important members of this
