We are creating a list of prominent (‘notable’) feminists who will be attending the AWID Forum, so we can create content about them: articles and pictures on Wikipedia and other sites. Important feminist issues and organisations will also be added to this list. The Wikimujeres delegation will work with a contingent of Wikipedians not at the Forum to set up a virtual editathon on the weekend of 11-12 September.
Program schedule with names of prominent feminists speaking (can be used to expand this list): http://www.forum.awid.org/forum16/program/overview-strategic-sessions

Homa HoodfarNoacademic - anthropologistyes in english - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homa_Hoodfar Not in Spanish

Now on En, Es, Fa, Ar.
NoPRIORITY content (in Pt and Es at the very least?) Homa was going to be there but has been detained in Iran because of her research. Her niece Amanda will be at the Forum along with others who are part of the team advocating for her release (Rima Athar, Farida Shaheed). WHRD plans to have solidarity actions for Homa on Day 1 of Forum.Campaign is keen to raise profile in LAC countries - so a Spanish entry could be a good action
