Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User Group[edit]

Having worked for 2 years editing articles for Women In Red, a group of organizers have concluded that sourcing is one of the biggest hurdles in creating articles on women and non-binary genders. Though it is true that a lot of sourcing simply doesn’t exist, it is also true that there are sources, but we have no access to them. As these groups did not typically become subjects for academic study until the 1970s, many of the sources are not on line or are behind paywalls. Failure to include women and non-binary people in the encyclopedia presents a one-dimensional view of society and history. To address those issues, we are forming a new User Group aimed at referencing and support for like-minded groups and would appreciate your input or input from your supporters in our organizational process.

Requesting article re-assessment: Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers[edit]

Hi folks -- The entry for Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers is listed as a high-importance, stub-quality article. Others and I have put some effort into improving the article in the last few months, and I hope it now passes muster for a higher rating on the quality scale. Could I request that someone less biased than I have a look at the article to re-assess its quality? Thanks! Kenirwin/(talk) 13:37, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Women in World War II[edit]

The original text was mostly about active participation of Women in WWII. I believe that women as vicitms and spies should be also described. I have partilaly rewritten the section about Poland. Many sections aren't started yet.Xx236 (talk) 10:18, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

FAR[edit]

Paleolithic Goddess[edit]

http://profblanchardclass.blogspot.com/2011/02/prehistoric-art.html

So, I'm trying to decipher just exactly how much damage Llewellyn Press has done to Modern Wicca by constantly infusing new age nonsense in to it. I'm looking for a page referencing the Paleolithic 'Venus' and her probable relationship to the original Goddess worship which predates Baal worship as the world's oldest organized religion.. and how this original Goddess relates to Lilith, Gaia and other archetypal goddesses in the various pantheons.

I've got nothing. Zero, zip, zilch. I found two disambiguation pages on 'the Great Goddess' (which ought to be 'the Goddess - capitol G') and 'Goddess Worship'. Oh, and some academic twits decided to disenfranchise Lilith's legends in to their separate Pantheons, so you can no longer reference them all in one place.

Is this information mislabeled somewhere?? It seems like an AWFUL lot of missing data to simply not exist.

Help? Crogonint (talk) 05:57, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
