LinuxChix: Information for the media

About

LinuxChix is an international group of Free Software users and developers, founded in 1999 with the aim of "supporting women in Linux." Founder Deb Richardson described it as an alternative to the "locker room atmosphere" found in some online technical forums and gave LinuxChix two core rules: "be polite" and "be helpful".

LinuxChix has been continually active for eight years and its forums have attracted over one thousand members worldwide. In addition, it has over fifteen active regional chapters, including LinuxChix Africa, LinuxChix India and LinuxChix Brazil. LinuxChix members range from novice Linux users to Linux kernel developers and technical and project leads.
