Here's one place you can start for reading:
http://www.linuxchix.org/women-open-source-free-software-bibliography.html


Another is:
http://women.acm.org/search/


Perhaps a bibliography is called for in this series to help educate readers about what research is out there. The research I'm aware of appears to conclude that there is systemic bias in the industry that specifically discourages women.


Certainly, more research is needed! I would love for this series to inspire further academic discovery.

    For example:
    The Encyclopedia of Gender and Information Technology is the only reference work that provides an all-encompassing perspective on the way gender and information technology impact each other. Hundreds of leading international experts have compiled their research about the role of gender in human interaction with IT and the IT profession. Special attention is paid to the contributions, challenges, issues, and experiences of women in the IT field. This innovative encyclopedia contains more than 1,450 key terms and their definitions, supplying readers with the most complete understanding of the subject. These two volumes include 213 entries with over 4,700 references to additional works on gender and information technology in order to stimulate further research. The Encyclopedia of Gender and Information Technology is a must-have publication for every library."
