Suggested Topics for March 29th edit-a-thon
The following is a sampling of suggested articles to create or add upon. However, feel free to come up with your own ideas! You may also consider cleaning up articles on more well-known women, such as Marie Curie, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Jane Goodall, Rosa Parks or Ada Lovelace. Helpful updates could be as simple as making sure reference links are still appropriate and functional.
