GNU/Linux offers no packages for Women??

We have all variety of packages in GNU/Linux which are no gender specific and anyone can use them in home computing . But then we have games for kids and adult males.

I was wondering why can`t or don`t have some special packages on every or at least the major GNU/Linux distributions which are more feminine oriented ?

I have seen Window$ tools for pharmacists,homeopaths,traditional medicine practitioners and so on. Why can`t we have some packages for women on Linux?

I am clueless , would you people like to generate some ideas? !

Ahemmmm! and isn't it strange that we are not even thinking about packages in GNU/Linux for MEN. I would like you to put more light on this idea of a "feminine oriented" package and what it may include :)

Dear Samir,
Thanks for dropping by and for your comments.

This "GNU/Linux % Women" is an untouched,mostly ignored aspect of OSS world.

I was wondering if ever some Ladies drop by my blog page and let us all know what packages would they want specifically for themselves along with all the routine "non-gender specific" ones. This will make GNU/Linux and home computing as much of a fun as it is currently for us: the men and kids with so much for us in GNU/Linux .
