Dear all,

   There is one more day left for participating in the first online
edit-a-thon happening in connection with International women's day
celebrations in India. Thirteen new articles have been created as a part of
the edit-a-thon. Volunteers from Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi have
initiated edit-a-thons in their respective languages and have produced
wonderful results so far.

If you are interested in creating/expanding articles related to women, sign

A news report about the women's day events was posted by Vaishali Chitnis
