Debian is a free distribution of the GNU /Linux operating system, created and maintained by a group of volunteers. At present, there are about 950 developers contributing to Debian, yet less than 1% of these developers are women. The Debian Women Project was started in 2004, to encourage more women to participate in Debian development, and to provide a forum for discussion of issues related to women in free software. In this talk, I will give a brief overview of Debian as a whole, before introducing the background and aims of the Debian Women Project. I will also discuss the project’s achievements so far, and plans for the future.

This talk is part of the Offtopic Lunch series.
