Women of Wikipedia Unite project

For some of you out there, you might be interested in two upcoming efforts to improve female scientist's Wikipedia pages and improving the numbers of women editing Wikipedia.

I'm all for whatever it takes to get more people editing whatever gender they are.  And want all pages for scientists and skeptics to be improved.  Female or not.

Or, I'm sure the people listed on the links below would love to hear from you.
