Subject: Women's day and Wikipedia
To: Increasing female participation in Wikimedia projects

Hi all,

today I just remembered that the International Women's day is arriving
<'s_Day>. I would like
to know if people in this group is thinking about something to do on 8
March. I just compared the English article in Wikipedia with the
Portuguese version
<> and it
seems there is a lot to be improved in the later, although I am sure a
lot in the first as well.

I remember the first time I saw how important is this day was through
a Russian friend who taught how important is this day for the Russian
woman - at least that is my impression when I compare to my society,
although I know people here who value this day a lot, like dad who
always give something to mom. :)

Sorry if I missed some e-mail, but is there something planned? (just
saw the e-mail bellow) Maybe an international edithaton about some
women on Wikipedia? Or improve the Wikipedia article about this day
and try to achieve a better level on the 10 most read languages of
Wikipedia? Just some ideas, I hope more can appear.
