In the UK, the Education Secretary Ruth Kelly is launching a scheme to get more women working in technology and comouting. The embarassingly named Computer Club for Girls (the name is probably a barrier in itself) is being rolled out across England to give “girls the chance to take part in a wide range of computer-based activities, from designing their own celebrity posters to creating a fashion show or mixing music”. SO hopefully in 5-10 years time we’ll have more women that can be asked to speak at the various conferences. From the BBC
