December 6 is a special day for women. It's the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada:
"Established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, this day marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal. They died because they were women.
The excellent volunteers who maintain the Linuxchix website have added a new section, "What Linuxchix Are Doing." This is for interesting and useful activities by Linuxchix members that are not directly related to Linuxchix; for example, events in Debian-Women and Ubuntu-Women, conferences, jobs ("Foochixx0r was hired by Boggle as Open Source Maven!"), community volunteer activities, startups- the possibilities are legion.
Only a few days left for Chix miniconf @ lca submissions! They're due Monday Oct 15. *** PLEASE NOTE: the submission email address has changed.
