    I appreciate the sincere sentiment behind lists like this, you want to help promote women in the industry. But as a woman in tech who has been on a few of these lists, it always makes me feel demeaned and as though I'm getting mentioned only for being a woman. I actually dropped out of a speaking engagement when they proudly told me they included me after a male speaker mentioned their lack of diversity. I want to be known for being a good designer. Not for being a woman designer.

      Super fair point. Me personally, I don't follow as many designers who happen to be ladies. This was my attempt to learn about more designers who happen to be ladies and follow/read/review their work.
