Hi!

Please read HOWTO Encourage Women in Linux - http://ldp.kernelnotes.de/HOWTO/Encourage-Women-Linux-HOWTO/ for some interesting thoughts on the topic "women / computers / sexism"

As for the stats:

I'm not married but living together with my girlfriend (and our two kids (7 and 3)) for eight years. Neither of us is social immature, and we're nearly the same age (although I'm 10 months older...)

Also what is about Perl that attracts more males than femals

I think that compared to other very technical fields, Perl attracts more women than those. This might be because you do not need to decode a lot of complicated technical jargon ( a common technique used by males to shut out women) to start using Perl.
