Hi everyone,

A few of us came together on the WikiWomen's History Month page to create a "List of Lists of Women" on English Wikipedia. Plenty of red links throughout the lists included, and yes everything is covered involving women! Even women pirates...


I know we'd love to see a similar collection in other languages, and use them as tools for figuring out what other lists need to be created, but also what articles need to be made.

Also, please take a look at our English WikiWomen's History Page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiWomen's_History_Month

We have more events that have been added, so please get involved, online or offline!  There are also discussions on the talk page.

Looking forward to seeing some great things happen in March,


Hi Sarah -

Interesting idea, it's interesting to see how many of those lists exist.   Suggest that you move this page to [[Index of lists of notable women]] to keep it in line with our standard naming conventions:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:LIST#Types_of_lists

I do think the inclusion of the word "notable" is important here.  The lists aren't just of women, they're of women who are notable enough to qualify for a Wikipedia article - which is a pretty low bar, as anyone who's ever tried to get some mess deleted already knows!
