Welcome to Women in Green, an attempt to bring core articles on women and women's works up to minimum Wikipedia:Good article (GA) status. We currently have 4701 articles out of 38,798 Good Articles on the site (roughly 12.1%) and 517 articles out of 6,410 Featured Articles (roughly 8.1%).

Never written a Good Article? No worries! Every incremental improvement of articles within the scope of WikiProject Women is welcome. Do whatever you enjoy doing and if you have questions, or seek a mentor to get an article improved/nominated for GA, just ask. We are in it together.
