Gender is FLOSSIble? Good news from Uganda…


Milton Aineruhanga <milton@wougnet.org> informs us that after the
recent Africa Source 2 event (see their mailing list at
africasource2-l@lists.tacticaltech.org ) the Linux Chix Africa- Uganda
chapter was born.

Milton writes: “It is now in existence and is seeking membership from
women in Uganda. The targeted audience is decision makers, end users as
well as women computer technicians. The primary focus of Linux Chix
Africa- Uganda chapter will be FOSS [Free/Libre and Open Source
Software] and women in Uganda. The chapter seeks to advocate for the
use of FOSS by women at all levels i.e. both the urban and the rural
woman.

Maybe we in South Asia should try and promote the formation of
LinuxChix chapters in Indian states too. I would love to see one happen
in Goa (and am willing to help, without interfering!). But there are so
few potential members I can think of!
