Wikipedia Project

Did you know that as of May 2020, only 18.39% of English-language biographies on Wikipedia were about women? And that only one of New Hampshire's first 100 women lawyers has a Wikipedia article?

We've decided to work toward ameliorating this by adding and improving upon articles about historically notable New Hampshire women in New Hampshire's legal community.
