FIDE Titles Awarded: Another Female Joins the GM Ranks

Congratulations to Viktoria Cmilyte (LTU), who was awarded the Grandmaster title on July 23, 2010. 
I counted 19 GM titles among the top 100 women in the world on the last FIDE list - Cmilyte can now be added.  This does not include players such as GM Susan Polgar who are inactive/retired and therefore not listed.

WGM (Woman Grandmaster)
CHN Ding, Yixin
IND Padmini, Rout
UKR Suleimanova, Ava
