i've recently started hanging out on #aussiechix on irc.linuxchix.org, the IRC channel of AussieChix. It's been wonderful - civil and intelligent conversations about a variety of topics, and IT-related discussion in which assumptions aren't made about e.g. all the discussion participants being male, or that it's fine to continually associate being uninterested in or unknowledgable about IT with being female.

Earlier today someone on the channel pointed me to "On Being a No-name Blogger Using Her Real Name", an awesome (and long) piece that's basically about Internetting While Female: the rubbishy attitudes and behaviours we have to put up with, and how, when we express our dissatisfaction with this state of affairs, we're told That's Just How It Is, Deal With It and It's All Our Fault Anyway. Highly recommended reading.
