I'm back in 2006 and continuing to time travel...
http://www.texasgoldengirl.com/afterhours/code-like-a-girl/

Anyways, I don't see a reason to logo-ize this with an ASF feather.
I do see a reason to borrow such a tag line for a specific inclusive
initiative, as the ASF welcomes any good code and productive
dev- dialog from anyone at all.

I'm thinking of running a batch of "Hack Like a Girl" ribbons for the
next PenguiCon, handing them out to everyone who who is proud
to wear one. (A number of conventions have a very broad ribbon
culture, beyond the speaker/sponsor/staff default choices.)
