Just learned about a woman in computer science history: Elizabeth Fong. She spent her career at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, and is mentioned as attending data standardization meetings in RFC-316 (1972). She was heavily involved in the effort to standardize SQL in the 1980s.

Here's a 2014 interview with her:
