  • @repecmps: and I am one, but I still think that more female contributions could only improve the overall quality of the site. – bangnab Aug 18 '11 at 8:20

    It started out as a site for moms, but quickly changed when a bunch of dads showed up and wanted to participate. See moms4mom.com/dads for the whole story – Scott Whitlock Feb 8 '11 at 23:38

It's not uncommon for women to avoid making their gender known on the internet, in order to avoid unwanted harassment.

There may well be more women than can be "seen".

Mrs DaveShaw will most likely join, but is a bit befuddled by the Area 51 side of stuff.

It might be a tech barrier thing. My women friends weren't the ones who directed me to Stack Exchange. I wonder what their user stats are?

Also take into account that originaly SE has some programming related subjects covered and although I can only speak for the context in which I live (Mexico) but i haven't met many females tech-oriented enough to use the main/original/first sites of the stack exchange network which makes it a little bit harder (also i must admit that the few i have met are really skilled)

  • I may not be a parent but having experienced the good things stack exchange can bring i would really like it for when i take such step – jclozano Dec 20 '11 at 5:47
