[UbuntuWomen] ubuntu-women IRC channel to become a Ubuntu corechannel - why?

I'd be perfectly happy to serve as an op.  My day is usually open, as I am a 
stay-at-home-mom.  I do have some coming-and-going that I must do to 
accommodate school and extracurricular activities, but I'd be happy to be a 
presence in the channel.  A tutorial, though, might be helpful on what it 
might entail, as I've not got the slightest idea on what or how to do it.
