Carol Smith, Google's Open Source Programs Manager, posted a nice writeup about women at the 2010 Google Summer of Code. She writes, "There was some really awesome work done by more than 1,000 students from 69 countries in this year’s Summer of Code. Of those students, 6.5 percent were women representing 23 countries—six times higher than the estimated proportion of women in the open source community." Check out her article, Sixth annual Summer of Code flexes some serious geek girl muscle, to learn more about some of the participants.
