Advocacy opportunity: Participate in the #DOProud campaign

Proud DOs and osteopathic medical students are speaking up and sharing their experiences on social media.

    What was the purpose of stating that the two doctors spearheading the campaign are women? Was this supposed to be extraordinary in some way, because it has nothing to with the article or being a DO. There are plenty of female DOs. If two male DOs had been spearheading the campaign, would you have written that it was two males? No, because the articles has nothing to do with gender. So, the question begs asking why the author thought it was necessary to mention the gender of these two DOs?
