Hey Bangpypers,

Currently, only 20% of hackathon participants are women. It's a low number,
unfortunately equal to the percentage of women pursuing degrees in Computer
Science and reflective of the representation of women-in-tech in general as
well.

believe that community hackathons (checkout InOut <https://hackinout.co/>
and ETHIndia <http://ethindia.co> organised by us) are a great way to break
down barriers to entry in the tech space for women.

We’re delighted to announce India’s biggest all-women hackathon - wmn;
<https://wmn.community> happening in Bangalore on 1-2 June. With wmn; we're
looking to shape the way women get involved with tech. You can have fun, be
creative, build, break, learn, and ask questions in a space that celebrates
diversity.

We're also going to have a great lineup of speakers for the conference
which is free for all to attend irrespective of gender. Tickets are live
here <https://devfolio.co/wmn/ticket>, get them before they disappear!
