Individuals, groups or companies doing outreach to women involved in or interested in open source software often find it hard to contact women in large numbers. This page has some suggestions for publicity venues with a large number of women readers.


LinuxChix has a large, majority-women subscriber base interested in open source broadly. You can contact their members using these mechanisms:

  • email their announce list for events, scholarships, and similar offerings for women
  • email their jobposts list with postings of paying jobs open for application
