An article on Typographica written by Verena Gerlach posed the question "Where are the Women in Type Design?" In response Indra Kupferschmid and I started creating a Listgeeks list of Female typedesigners. (You can also view mine here.) After some back and forth it was decided that the list really deserved to be on a wiki and I suggested the Typowiki. Thus allowing others to add those whom they believe belong on the list.
