Yes there are a lot of women teachers and as I said earlier the girls
tend to go for some typicle circle of job options.
Today free and open source culture has created new avanues of working
and the way in which we work also differs with reference to such
organisations. What I found is that due to obvious social conditions,
this is the place where not many girls are seen.
Yes, free software or software persay can't be the solution, but having
said that it will be nice to see more and more women coming to this

Interestingly, girls are in the majority among students, and women are
in majority among teachers. It is for, so to say, "extra curricular"
activities that females are absent. And this must be due to social
issues -- male dominance. And the domestic responsibilities that they
have to carry on their heads. If there are females in this list, it
would be nice if they respond.
This problem cannot be tackled by Free Software. It exists, as I
understand, almost everywhere, including the developed world. This has
to be tackled from a different angle.
