The KU People section claims to be "Putting KU on Display" and does a nice job of showcasing 8 male faculty members. My wife commented to me: "can't they find any women to put on the face of KU?"

After all, 45% of faculty are female according to the open-site.org website, and 49-52% of students, depending on which website you go to, are women. I know of plenty of top notch female faculty--why not show more than half a face? Considering the prominent role women have played in the history of our state in general and KU in particular, perhaps it's not too late to correct this most likely unintentional oversight?
