In honor of International Women's Day (March 8th) the Ubuntu Women project hosts events/contests/projects aimed at encouraging and celebrating women in Ubuntu.
International Women's Day -- Competition!
We have all come to Ubuntu in our own special ways -- every single one of us differently to the next. Yet one of the most common questions we get asked is "How can I get $woman to use Ubuntu?".
Obviously we cannot really answer that question, but we would dearly love to have a collection of stories by women about how they discovered Ubuntu. Such a repository would allow us to demonstrate that there's no one definitive answer, and at the same time maybe provide the gift of inspiration to women who are interested -- showing them that it's really not so unusual to be Ubuntu fans after all.
