Editors can also help by cleaning up existing articles. 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.
The following lists of potential subjects have been crowdsourced. When writing your first entry please make sure that you can find at least three reliable sources for the article.
The names in red don't have an article yet; the blue ones have an article but there may be potential for improvement.
When you write an entry please add it to the List of women architects, which is ordered by nationality. It is also important to add your articles to the category Women Architects and the subcategories such as German women architects, Australian women architects and American women architects.
This is a crowdsourced list – it is not complete or comprehensive. Before you start writing make sure you can find at least three reliable sources to cite and link to. For information about suggested links, sources and references refer to the full spreadsheet of crowdsourced recommendations for Australia. If you have further suggestions of subjects please add them in below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
