Where are the FEMALE tech start-up superstars 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?

Best,
Shalin

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
