Australian Women in Religion Wiki Project Newsletter (Feb 2023)

The initial goal of the project was to create 100 new Wikipedia articles about women whose life or work was influenced in some way by religious and spiritual traditions. Many of these women have made valuable contributions in the church, community and wider Australian society, in diverse fields such as education, health, social welfare and philanthropy. Creating new Wikipedia articles also helps address the gender imbalance on Wikipedia where only about 18% of biographical articles are about women. The project has significantly expanded in scope since its inception and now incorporates a range of associated projects and activities. Please read on for news, achievements and ways that you can become involved.
