|SO, HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?|
We will be adding a list of articles that need to be expanded, created, translated, or re-written here on the day of the event. You don't need to write a whole article, even the smallest changes can really improve an article's quality and reach. Adding references, links to other Wikipedia articles, and pictures from Wikimedia Commons to articles makes a big difference to Wikipedia.

|Resources from the BBC|
See below lists of women from the BBC 100 Women years, current to previous. We have provided sources for some of the women and suggestions for articles to improve.
Do I need to write a whole new article? No, in fact in some cases it's better that you find other ways to add these people to Wikipedia. Look for related articles, such as events, organisations, professions or subjects the person is connected to, where they may be referenced as an example or their achievements can be added.
Copy, copy, copy. Use previous formats, ideas, structures and to shape your contributions. Look for similar articles or examples to follow, that way you don't have to re-invent the wheel.
Not everyone can get onto Wikipedia. Sometimes if you can't find enough good sources, a subject might not be ready for an article.
Or there is a consolidated list here from the Women in Red project, with some other links and sources.
Beyond 100 Women. There are thousands of women missing from Wikipedia. Women in Red aims to correct that. Here is a comprehensive list of women by profession, country or continent who need articles, some of which have references which can be used to create those articles.
