I agree. I also feel that one of the goals of the list -to provide a
path for women and girls to get into Debian Development- is not needed
that much anymore, as I really feel there are no problems for a woman
to get directly into most development teams. We have the second goal
pending anyway, that is to be able to attract more women to the
project, and in that way I think the project is still needed and it
would be nice if we could make it more active.

I don't have any great marvellous ideas on how to achieve this (to
make more women attracted to the idea of cooperating with Debian's
development), and I really don't think the most important problems we
might face in this regard are Debian-specific in any way, but that
they depend instead on the way society is structured, education,
expectations put on women, and the patriarchy in general. It should
still be a goal for the team, as difficult as it might be to achieve,
to get more women attracted to Debian's development, so the list might
still have a reason to exist.
