Re: Debian Women Introduction

Hello Daniel !

Thanks for replay.

It is good idea to engage them with free software. but, i think it's too early for them.

I believe that first stage is to meet them with Debian Linux show them that there is other OS except Windows, 
Than explain them about open-source community and introduce them to the Debian community via video conference.

By doing this i hope it will encourage women to get more involved.

Next week i'll try to schedule time for video conference.

if you know people that might be interested to 
* Explain about Debian Linux
* Encourage women to be involved in community
* Introduce the community
* Display small presentation about open-source
* Explain why open-source is important 
* Why use Linux instead windows 
* Community that can adapt our girls and motivate them to contribute 

You might want to join them to this conversation :-)

Hi Yehuda,

Thanks for your email to Debian

I'm mentoring a female student in Google Summer of Code this year.  She
is working on the JSCommunicator project, which could be used to
facilitate a video call as you discussed.  JitMeet from the Jitsi team
could also be used.

One way you could quickly engage with free software may be to help
translate JSCommunicator - I understand Hebrew is the official language
in Israel so this might be a very easy way to participate in one of our
projects.  You can see how the Spanish translation was submitted here:
