Valorie on #linuxchix just posted this link to the channel. It's called Let's Evolve Past This: The Barriers Women Face in Tech Communities. I suggest everyone read it. It's not specifically Linux, and especially not Ubuntu, but given some issues (see: here and the 3 posts after it) that have come up on the Ubuntu mailing lists, and the way that the Ubuntu Code of Conduct supports the points made in the article, it should be interesting. I fully agree with the points made, by the way. I can certainly say "oh, I've had that happen...it sucked" about a bunch of those. I commented on it about one experience of which it reminded me.
