That was just me opinion, as trying to look from a side of some
specific women I know, they would prefer selling peanut butter face to
face, rather then sitting and writing some stuff like programming. 

Women and men have both biological gender preferences in any kind of
human activity. The problem is not related to GNU operating system in
my opinion. It is general, historical and specific problem.

Maybe this will help you:

Myself I do not see any real problem in gender cap, as it is something
one cannot really control. It indicates that society's type and its
culture is generaly to blame for gendera gaps. Maybe there are
sucessful actions to learn from Saudi Arabia where women in computing
reserve whole 59%

There is disparity even though companies make campaigns to welcome
everybody or establish policies against discrimination of any kind.

You may initiate in your own community a type of computer club and
invite people of all kind.

When holding our computer club "Kosmos" I was never looking into
gender. And we did have genders in two computer clubs that I was
holding, one was in former Yugoslavia, second one was in Stuttgart,
Germany. All kind of people were coming, including elder women and men
who wanted to learn computing.

Are you member of any computer users group?
