Gnome The GNOME Journal team has published issue 17 of the GNOME Journal, titled "Women In Open Source". This is their first issue with a unified theme, and with all articles written by women from the open source community. The idea and execution of this issue was created by the GNOME Women community. It comes packed with articles about GNOME and its underlying frameworks.

Being female myself I do find it refreshing and somewhat interesting to hear about other women in F/OSS landscape slowly making name for themselves. I still hear belittling comments and disbelief from men every now and then about how women can't use computers and all such crap, so anything that proves we ain't any single bit worse off than men is a positive thing.

Of course, in an ideal world there would be no need for proving such in either direction, but this world where we live in still suffers from thousands of years old beliefs and gender roles and there is no other way of breaking those than proving them wrong time and again until they are gone.
