Suggested topics[edit]

The following is a sampling of suggested articles to create or add upon. However, feel free to come up with your own ideas! In addition to the suggestions below, editors may consider cleaning up articles on more well-known women artists. Helpful updates could be as simple as: Making sure reference links are still appropriate and functional; Adding new inline citations/references; Adding a photo; Adding an infobox; Adding data to more fields in an existing infobox; Creating headings; Adding categories; etc. Editors may also choose to focus on women in design, performing arts, music, architecture, literature, philosophy, politics, etc.

Lists needing expansion and/or cleanup[edit]
