Australian Women in Religion Archive

Wikipedia Articles

The women listed below are included in the Australian Women in Religion Project list and have had a new Wikipedia page created since this project commenced in 2020. Many other women on the list have had their Wikipedia pages updated and improved. Our goal was to create at least 100 new Wikipedia pages in 2021 and to reach 200 new articles in 2022.

Wikipedia has a grading scale for articles. Most articles that this project will deal with will be in the range Stub - Start - C-class - B-class. The articles highlighted as C or B-class in the list below are therefore examples of high quality articles.

DYK refers to that article also appearing on Wikipedia's main page in the Did You Know? section.
