Where are the FEMALE led "start-up stories" at?...

Where are the female led "start-up stories" at?...

I was randomly thinking the other day that I've heard of the internet/computing/gadget superstars. There's an Intel ad with the tagline "our rock stars aren't like your rock stars". But all "great start-up stories" are all guys. The only female led the stories seem to be mostly guys... Obviously there are many females in journalism that cover internet/computing/gadgets, but it does not seem like there are many female "success stars" like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Are they out there addressing other online spaces I don't really go to b/c they cater to women only/primarily?

I'm sure I just haven't done much news-digging, but I don't think I should have to... so...where the clever, awesome start-up women at?

another version of the question... What does/can "Girl Power" 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 look like?

uh...scratch "The only female led the stories seem to be mostly guys..." I think I combine to weakly related thoughts...

I guess the only female led internet/computing/gadget stories I've heard in the last few years were:
1) Clocky
2) The Frag Dolls
3) Misc. social media personalities who seem to be famous only by virtue of having pics with A-/B-List mainstream celebrities...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
