I have written a blog post about the Indian events for International
Women's Day . You may know me well enough that I like you to consider to
use Wikidata. Given that you will be writing in many languages and it is
not obvious that the English language article will be created first, it
helps when there is a list that everybody can connect to.
I have created items for everyone mentioned on the project page on the
en.wp . When you write an article in any language, it is just a matter
of adding a link to the article.
For your information, currently there are 385 women known as being citizens
of India (remember this is modern India).

I urge Indian language editors to add lists of articles to create and
expand as a part of the edit-a-thon:
The theme of the edit-a-thon this year on the English Wikipedia is Women
Parliamentarians. The articles listed for creation, expansion and
improvement as a part of the Lilavati's Daughters edit-a-thon on women
scientists could be taken up again during Women's History Month.
