I have the feeling that in this particular case, at least, it would be
a good thing if a woman or a girl could be the one to video
conference, if that could be done. I think that is reason we got the
request at Debian Women, and I also see the possible benefits from it,
as it seems to be, in fact, a college for women. I understand that if
it is an in-person activity, such as visiting a campus, you will have
to do by whomever is available, male or female, and that makes totally
sense. That constraint is broken when we're talking about video
conferences, so in my opinion it would be nice if some woman or girl
would be able to do it. In the case that it was not possible, we might
maybe want to have an internal debate on how to make it possible for
future situations.


Hola Miry,
yes, I agree. The co-founder is female,  as well as other people involved with OH. So this seems very possible, scheduling permitting.
