Just had a quick scan of the Ubuntu-UK members list and only spotted a
couple of female names. Where are the dozen or so girls who made that
impressive entrance (sweeping in as a group fashionably late, all wearing
Ubuntu T-shirts) to the Hardy Heron launch party back in April? It was
heartening to see them and it helped make the event feel much more socially
balanced. There were women present before they turned up, but probably only
half a dozen or so, if memory serves. I didn't get a chance to talk to
anyone from the group, but assumed that most would be on this mailing list
at least.
