  • You probably know it anyway, but this document should be required-reading for all men: HOWTO Encourage Women in Linux [tldp.org].

    WRT your first point, time: I share all household and kids work with my partner very equal. When going to a conference, I have to handle all the things mentioned in your bulleted list. Most of the time it involves sending the kids to grandparents et.al.

    I'm working half-time (and I never worked full-time since I started working 8 years ago). Not only to have more time for open-source, reading, doing-nothing etc, but primarly to look after the kids (wich is getting less stressfull every year (they're now 9 and 5 years old)). We could probably earn much more money if I worked full hours, but what for? I'm much rather living happily together with my family than beeing rich (and never see my family).

    The point is: The low number of women in tech jobs (or in any high-paying, high-status fields) is not their fault. It's the fault of men who do not want to share their power and take their responsibilty.

    And yes, I'm a feminist.
