Women are half of the population in the world, but they are still under represented in the tech world industry nowadays. While there are clear actions in favor of attracting more female developers in order to bring more diversity to the project, the Linux Kernel shows a similar trend with this respect with low numbers.

This talk will focus on the contributions made by women to the Linux Kernel since the beginning (when possible!). This talk is specifically focused on technical contributions such as the code development activity and the code review process. It is intended to be a quantitative analysis plus specific manual polishing process to help in the accuracy of the data.
