Hi. Can someone give some care and love to Cora Sue Collins please?

I would be grateful if some people with subject knowledge could assess the sweeping edits currently being done to that article. I'm getting the impression that this is the wholesale replacement of one interpretation with another, based on very selective sources, but I simply don't know the subject area. In any case I suspect these big deletes/replacements need some talk page discussion before being implemented. - Also notified WikiProject Islam. --Elmidae (talk · contribs)

GA from 2006, it was't reassessed. Half of the article is unsourced, with 'This article needs additional citations for verification.' on top, 5 'citation needed' tags and two 'This section does not cite any sources' templates (Female Peronist Party and women's suffrage and Honours), see also unsourced sections: Juan Perón's arrest, 1946 presidential election, European tour, Vice-presidential nomination, Re-election and Spiritual Leader of the Nation; and 19 'page needed' tags.

  • Comment. If there is a case to change this, then similar changes would probably be needed for WP Women in Red and WP Women's Health as well as more generally for U.S. Roads, Television Stations, Ice Hockey, etc., etc. Not sure whether it would all be worthwhile.--Ipigott (talk) 10:22, 7 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
WP:WikiProject Women's Health → "health" for sure, if "history" passes, at least to make all the women WPs internally consistent, which they are very close to being. "History" & "Health" are outliers amongst the lowercase variants, and if the reverse were true, then RMs to make them all uppercase would be just as valid. Going full slippery-slope beyond women seems like an overreaction.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  15:19, 8 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
As both WP Women in Red and WP Wiki Loves Women have been widely quoted in the international press as well as on Meta and in many other language versions of Wikipedia, I think it would be a major mistake to change them to WP:Women in red and WP Wiki loves women.--Ipigott (talk) 15:23, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm with Ipigott on this: "Women in Red" is more like a proper noun, a distinctive name, while "Women's history" is a plain description of a topic. PamD 16:07, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm with Ipigott too; I don't think WP:Women in Red & WP:Wiki Loves Women should be changed.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  17:21, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • Neutral I had to stare at the proposal for awhile to even pick up the capitalization change in the last word. Certainly nothing wrong with standardization so long as all the links continue work. - RevelationDirect (talk) 22:16, 9 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • Oppose as frivolous. This isn't even an arcane WP:MOS issue, it's even less than that. The only way this will affect anyone is by annoying them. -- asilvering (talk) 16:21, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
Support per nom. This is consistent with how most projects are named. To Ipigott, Television Stations has been renamed 4 years ago to Wikipedia:WikiProject Television/Television stations task force. Gonnym (talk) 07:26, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Feedback Needed on Women's History List edit

I'd like to create a List for a WikiEdu archaeology course project. The list would be about women from Mediterranean/adjacent cultures known thanks to the archaeological record but who are otherwise lost to history because they were not described in ancient literary sources. There are already Wiki lists for 'distinguished Roman women' [read:elite], ancient prostitutes, etc., but no lists for these 'real' women. These women typically do not have Wikipedia articles/stubs. I had an editor look at the sandbox draft (which is still incomplete because my students have to add their entries) and was told "This does not seem to meet the criteria for WP:NLIST."

The (incomplete) draft is here with its first list entry as an example: User:EtruscanMayhem/sandbox. The other listed women (with empty entries) are the assigned student topics. The opening description saying: "The following list features women from the ancient Mediterranean and adjacent areas (e.g., Near East) who are attested archaeologically. Rather than focus on women mentioned in preserved literary texts passed down in the manuscript tradition, the list highlights women whose experiences have only survived thanks to the archaeological record. Their associated archaeological evidence reveals valuable data not just about the individual woman herself, but about women's history in that ancient region more generally. Such archaeological source material includes excavated inscriptions, tablets, papyri, artifacts, burials, monuments, archaeological contexts, and other such data."

It seems to me that these entries do indeed add to the work of the Women's History Project. Can you give some feedback on either a) how to make the list fit with criteria for WP:NLIST, or b) suggest whether these women should simply be given stub articles? Thanks. --EtruscanMayhem (talk) 20:45, 2 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

I have redrafted the List with consultation from WIkiEdu staff. EtruscanMayhem (talk) 21:30, 5 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • Use open-access references wherever possible, but a paywalled reliable source
    is better than none, particularly for biographies of living people.

Assistance with Kathleen Hicks? edit

Hello, I am hoping to find an editor willing to review a change I've proposed for the article about Kathleen Hicks, current U.S. deputy secretary of defense. Her article is out-of-date and incomplete in a few ways, and I currently have an open request to update information about her board roles. I have a COI with her as a topic, since I'm working directly with her family. If anyone is willing to review the request and consider implementing it, I would be grateful. Thanks, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 18:36, 26 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Women in Green GA Editathon June 2024 - Going Back in Time edit

 

Hello WikiProject Women's History:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in June 2024!

Running from June 1 to 30, 2024, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Going Back in Time! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 20 centuries by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!

Andromeda image deletion discussion edit

There is an image deletion discussion about the file "Clash of the Titans poster" in use at Andromeda (mythology). It demonstrates that the myth remains current, and that misinterpretation of the black princess of Aethiopia as a white woman is also continuing, a matter of misogynistic racism in the eyes of some of the cited scholars. Project members are invited to contribute their opinions to the discussion. Chiswick Chap (talk) 12:15, 17 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
