WordChicks is a chapter of the Melbourne WordPress User Group that is specifically created for, run by, and tutored by women.
We do this not for any reasons of exclusivity but to provide an inviting place where women can gain confidence in their web production, development, blogging and site management skills, and in sharing those skills with the wider group.
We do not currently restrict entry to the meetup by gender, but we simply ask that all those who attend, male and female alike respect our mandate that this group exists to inspire women to more confidence in contributing both to this group, and the wider WordPress project as a whole.
