+ - Head of LinuxChix Brazil looks to pass torch

Submitted by

lisah writes "LinuxChix Brazil's Sulamita Garcia tells Linux.com that, despite an enjoyable four-year run as head of the chapter, it's time to move on and let someone else take over the reins. Involved in the Linux community since 1999, Garcia has been an avid supporter of women in the open source community but says there isn't necessarily as wide a gender gap as many would believe. '[A]fter working with LinuxChix and getting in touch with so many more women that I ever thought would exist in FOSS communities, I strongly believe there are a lot more than we think,' she says. 'They just tend to be a lot less vocal than men.'"
