Free software is about freedom, but is that really a reality for everyone out
there? Is it true, what a lot of people claim, that since free software by its
nature is free, it therefore does not suffer from inequality? Everyone with the
economical and practical resources has the possibility to contribute to any free
software project, anyone can join. Unfortunately, reality does not look like
this, we have a problem with inequality. If we exclude women from the free
software community, we exclude contributors, both women and men. Is software
really free if not everybody is free to join?
