    I've written guidelines on how to write a Wikipedia biography with the intent to get more pages up on notable women in computing, and also to get more women writing Wikipedia pages (they are mostly written by men). I've also created a spreadsheet of notable women in computing (about 300 women) and the status of their Wikipedia page (whether they have one and if so, if it needs work) I'm looking for volunteers to help me write such pages and help with the status of women's pages.
