Murals of women in hacker culture were proposed and a Margaret Hamilton mural was completed. Let's do more!

What

The wall behind the fabrication area (at the south west corner of the space), was recently primer'd during the REFRESH. Now that we have all this fresh wall on which to have an art, we'd like to add new murals to it to accompany the nearby Tesla mural.

It was suggested that a mural of Margaret Hamilton be painted on the wall celebrating her contribution to the Apollo program. Upon this suggestion some folk threw in the idea that we should have multiple people immortalized on the wall, instead turning it from a mural of one into a dedicated mural to women in the history of computing.

who?

Have a suggestion as to whom we should put on the wall? Add it to the list! Include a link so that people can learn about their contributions.
