WiR redlist index: Technology

Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR). Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our scope is women's biographies, women's works, and women's issues, broadly construed.

This list of red links is intended to serve as a basis for creating new articles on the English Wikipedia. All new articles must satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria; red links on this list may or may not qualify.

This is a list under development of missing articles on women who are (or have been) notable for their contribution to technology in academics, business, economics, politics, research, government or the social sector.
