Cento vergilianus de laudibus Christi FAN[edit]

A month or so ago, I nominated the Latin poem Cento vergilianus de laudibus Christi at FAN. The work is unique and pertinent to this project for a number of reasons, namely that it might be the first Christian poem written by a women, as well as the the first work by a women to have been printed and disseminated via the printing press. If anyone would be so kind as to drop by the candidate page and offering some comments/suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it!--Gen. Quon (Talk) 16:12, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at http://69.142.160.183/~dispenser/cgi-bin/topic_points.py?banner=WikiProject_Women%27s_History

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 20:13, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Talk:Josephine Butler[edit]

You are invited to comment at Talk:Josephine Butler#Request for comment on names where there's an issue about naming; the article (which is currently a FA) refers to its female subject by her first name throughout "for simplicity". Any input is welcome.--John (talk) 18:26, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Revisiting gendered categories[edit]

Wikipedia talk:Categorization#Revisiting gendered categories: Let's have a clear criterion of "has or can have a proper article" --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:21, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

It is not a !voting proposal or RfC, but a discussion draft, and has already had some constructive feedback (e.g. leading with "ghettoization" of articles was a distraction, as were suggesting statistical differences and reasons for them without providing sources). Seeking input on the overall idea.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  02:28, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Gloria Richardson[edit]

Can this image be added to the Gloria Richardson article? Bus stop (talk) 00:11, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

It has been proposed that Timeline of feminism be merged into Timeline of second-wave feminism. Seeking your feedback at Talk:Timeline of feminism#Merge discussion. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 11:51, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

"Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne", by any other name[edit]

I've started a Request for Comment on Talk:Carolina Nairne#Request for comment on how to refer to the article subject: How should the article refer to its subject, Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne, after the initial mention of her full name? --GRuban (talk) 18:06, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
