That might be feasible for translations (though limiting to
translations "belonging" to Debian is sometimes tricky), though probably often limited
by "wild guess" when only the person's name is the key to decide
whether she's female (there are at least two translators who I myself
mistakenly addressed as men, sometimes for months, before knowing they
were women). Also, the translation work usually retains the name of
the last contributing person (Last-Translator in PO files) mais not
always very strictly the history of contributors.

Finally, I would here probably avoid listing names (you of
course know that some contributing women prefer avoiding to advertize
their gender: here again, I have real examples in mind in the l10n
