There is a dearth of women contributing to software and hardware development. This plugin is presented as a “filter” to challenge assumptions about gender roles in software, and to “rewire” your brain to who the developer is. The goal is to present such a ridiculous context to what female hacking aesthetics are and would be, that people get frustrated and start a deeper discussion and argument about gender, torrent culture and open source.
