Well done! I've added this paragraph to DebianWomen page in w.d.o:
=== Statistics ===
We're trying to create a database of women involved in Debian Project both as
DM/DD and as contributors without official roles. Pleas, see the page of
[[DebianWomen/Statistics|statistics]] and feel free to add yourself if you're
not in the list.
I'm not too convinced about "create database" 'cause seems a police thing :D
... maybe needs a rewording. "Create some statistics"? "Collect some numbers"?

Is it ok if I forward your mail (this mail) to debian-l10n-italian list, in
order to know how many women contribute there?
(I think we are only two).

Yes, sometimes it's also difficult distinguish name and surname. ;)
