1000 Women in Religion is a project of the Women's Caucus of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. This project is part of an initiative to create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives of cis and transgender women who are notable as scholars, activists and practitioners in the world's religious, spiritual and wisdom traditions. The 1000 Women in Religion Project committee meets monthly. If you would like to participate in these meetings find our contact information at http://womenscaucusaar.wixsite.com/womenscaucusaarsbl/1000-women-in-religion-project or contact Dzingle1.

All are invited to participate, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. This Meetup page will be used to post details about ongoing activities and events.
