Get Involved[edit]



  • Simple and cheap idea! Ellywa (talk) 09:21, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I really like this idea to encourage participation by women who are already active on Wikipedia :) Luthien22 (talk) 22:14, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Contests are fun. A contest for best article written by a female contributor would highlight accomplishments and encourage healthy competition. Could work! Ocaasi (talk) 00:42, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
