We have written these guidelines on creating Wikipedia pages on notable women in computing to help others get started on writing such pages. When we attempted to write our first Wikipedia page, we found it difficult to get started. We also found it intimidating as our first page was immediately flagged with warnings. We hope these guidelines will help encourage others to write pages, and also to increase the number of women writing Wikipedia pages. A survey done in 2010 indicated only 13% of those writing Wikipedia pages were women.

According to you are visitor number Hit Counter by Digits since October 9, 2013.
