• Women Active in Libre Commons

last modified April 7 by strypey

Even Pirates respect women! Some time back the kiwi Pirates had a discussion about how to improve the gender balance in the membership, and make the organisation more open and welcoming of new members from a diverse range of backgrounds. Being a sensitive topic, the members chose to have that discussion in private. But the collection of amazing online talks aggregated there, by some of the prominent women in the commons movements, is well worth sharing publicly. Since I'm no longer a member of the NZ Pirates, I will continue to expand it here.

Note: for now, the content here is still formatted in MarkDown for Loomio, as I am considering finding another Loomio group to host it. I may eventually convert it to wiki format, and/or transfer the information to the P2P Foundation wiki.
