I don't think making openSUSE attractive for women is "a strategy",
which should focus on broad goals.

If we make women as target audience of our strategy, we hit 50 % of the
world ;)

If we look at the last survey, the number of female participants is less
than 2 % - so having women as target audience would help us to grow the
user and contributor base.

The question is what kind of strategy could we develop? Or should this be -
and I see many arguing for it in this thread - part of our community
statement and therefore part of any strategy we do?
