We leave ourselves open to misinterpretation when we launch a project with 
vague goals, and then announce it to the world.

Still, I'm of the mind that any press is good press.  Now we need to 
figure out how to capitalize on it.

Having an actual *woman* speaking on behalf of Fedora Women might be a
good start, in fact.  And if we can't find a woman who's willing to do 
it... well, that indicates another problem, doesn't it?
