Thanks to Adrianne for this great suggestion! I've just put this exact
post together, featuring Adrianne and the four other women who are
Campus Ambassadors at Indiana University.

Perhaps one project for us to undertake is to make
women visible. Perhaps there are invisible women working in the
background? I know, for example, that 5 of the 6 Campus Ambassadors
here at Indiana University for the Public Policy Initiative are women.
That means that when people "see the face of Wikipedia" for the first
time, they see a woman. This is not a gender-specific project, but it
does help break down the stereotypes about Wikipedia editors. Perhaps
we need to highlight these types of efforts? I know a lot of women on
Wikipedia who do outreach but I'm not sure how well-known they are in
the wider community. Do we need to do Signpost stories?
