I have written a blog post about the Indian events for International Women's Day [1]. 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 [2]. 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).

The project page for coordinating online and offline events for International Women's Day (March 8) and Women's History Month has been published on Meta at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_History_Month,_India-2014

I urge Indian language editors to add lists of articles to create and expand as a part of the edit-a-thon: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_History_Month,_India-2014/To_do_list

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.
