Welcome to Women in Green, an attempt to bring core articles on women up to minimum Wikipedia:Good article (GA) status. We currently have just 1309 articles out of 30,241 Good Articles on the site, roughly 4.3%.

Never written a Good Article? No worries! Every incremental improvement of articles within the scope of WikiProject Women is welcome. Do whatever you enjoy doing and if you have questions, or seek a mentor to get an article improved/nominated for GA, just ask. We are in it together.

Visit our new GA Tasks Bulletin Board to post a request for help with specific editing tasks on your current GA project (or respond to somebody else's request).

Current nominations[edit]

Group goals[edit]

In 2019, Women in Green has two separate goals: (1) to submit a collective total of 20 GA nominations about women or women's works related to women's suffrage, and (2) to submit a collective total of 20 "Wildcard" GA nominations about women and women's works of any kind. All project participants are encouraged to add their nominated articles to the 2019 Goal Tracking list. For ideas for articles to work on for women's suffrage, see Women in Green/2019 suffragists.

Past goals[edit]

2018: Women in Green members surpassed their goal of submitting a collective total of 25 GA nominations about women or women's works, achieving a final total of 27. All nominations were successfully passed as GA articles.

Nominations waiting review[edit]

Below is an automatically generated list of articles about women and women's works which have been nominated for GA and are waiting to be reviewed. *Please Note: Inclusion in this list does not indicate that the nominating editor of the article is a member of Women in Green. This list is merely intended to draw attention to these nominated articles and encourage interested editors to help out by reviewing GA nominations.

Interested in reviewing a GA nomination, but unfamiliar with the process? Please read the GA review instructions and feel free to ask questions at the Good Article Help Desk. All Women in Green project members must follow the GA review instructions, and should not promote articles to GA status without a good faith belief that the article meets the Good Article Criteria.
