It is perhaps unsurprising that the only two large, female-dominated open source projects3 have either come out of this community (Archive of Our Own4) or have strong ties to it (Dreamwidth5).

I'm really curious as to why the female-centric communities that produced the AO3 and DW ended up female-dominated FLOSS, while the female-centric communities of libraries still have mail-dominated FLOSS. (There are many female code4libbers, but still certainly the minority, and the coding projects are still male-dominated.) I would love to see a study on that.
