Upcoming online events

WikiProjects are encouraged to create and develop women's history month focuses for the month of March. Please list your event here!

Opera and women's history

  • WikiProject Opera will, as usual, feature an all-woman "In this month" on the Opera Portal.
  • Our "March Composer of the Month" collaboration will feature Ethel Smyth. We plan to create articles on four of her operas.
  • Our "March Operas of the Month" collaboration will work on improving and creating articles for operas based on female historical figures.
  • We hope to have several articles from the two collaborations make it to the Did you know? section on the Main Page in March.

Architecture and women's history
