The #Ada initiative

The Ada initiative, named after one of the heroins of computing, intends to increase the participation of women in open technology and culture. The goal as specified is to help women to build their careers in this field.

Wikipedia is specifically mentioned as a project where female participation is to be encouraged. I hope that this project will be a roaring success and that the inclusion of Wikipedia will allow this project to quickly become a project with a global reach.
Thanks,
