Adams, AbigailPage EditHer page is quite sparse for her activity and beliefs! For example, there is no mention of her bond speculation and her work on helping to create a liquid currency and her disagreements with John over the future of wealth and assets in America. How could this not yet be on her page? Holton, Woody. "Abigail Adams, Bond Speculator." https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/25096751.pdf?refreqid=excelsior%3A6691fdf990146b32431f049b8c125747

Foster, Abby KelleyBlog PostPage Edit
NYHS Citation
Oh boy! First of all, way too short of an article on her. Secondly, this is a prime example of how we need to better highlight networks of women on Wikipedia. In the "lead," the opening paragraph, they link her right away to William Lloyd Garrison but they don't bring up her relationship to the Grimke sisters or Elizabeth Cady Stanton until several paragraphs down, and I don't think they mention her relationship to Lydia Maria Child at all. I think the lead should contain her relationship to these networks of women rather than to the one male author they chose - or in addition to, but certainly, her work with other women was crucial to her life and work and deserves to be in the lead. http://blog.nyhistory.org/ahmc-of-the-month-nineteenth-century-women-activists/

Link to Women's Networks
There is no page on her! She was the first woman ordained as a Universalist minister and was an active women's rights activist. We can enhance women's networks on Wikipedia by discussing her work with other 19th century abolitionists and suffragettes and reformers. There is a mention of her on the Wikipedia page for the National Women's Rights Conventions - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Women%27s_Rights_Convention , but no link to her name, so we should link her in to pages on Universalism, reformers, suffragettes, etc. We can add her in to the cannons and networks on Wikipedia. http://blog.nyhistory.org/ahmc-of-the-month-nineteenth-century-women-activists/

Knopf, BlancheWomen's VoicesPage EditHer page needs massive work to show how her husband explointed gender disadvantages to steal her ideas and place them under his name - meanwhile, how she was super progressive and helped sign a number of people with the Harlem Renaissance, some European intellectuals, etc., really created Knopf, the publishing house. It's an injustice that there is still an imprint called "Alfred Knopf" but none named after her.

Madison, DolleyCurriculum GuidesPage Edit
NYHS Citation
This article refers to her "social graces" as "inreasing James Madison's popularity," just defining her significance in relationship to her husband. Instead, I think we should fix the lead to show what a brutal and often violent affair early American politics were and how Dolley Madison basically created bipartisanship, showcasing how women's vocations were a defining component of creating the American political system. Compare to Jefferson and how he would only meet with one political party at a time but not invite people from differing parties to be in the same room - Dolley changed that, but the lead doesn't reflect that at all. https://www.nyhistory.org/sites/default/files/newfiles/cwh-curriculum/Module%201/Life%20Stories/Dolley%20Madison%20Life%20Story.pdf

Richberg-Hornsby, LedaBlog PostPage Edit

NYHS Citation
Only a "start class" article, doesn't talk about her activism and suffrage activities, can also add a bit to her legacy by citing the opera that was inpired by herhttp://blog.nyhistory.org/the-suff-bird-women-and-woodrow-wilson/

http://womenatthecenter.nyhistory.org/womens-history-takes-flight/
Fun fact: this page was created by the composer who wrote the opera, with our blog posts as a starting point. The idea of including the opera (which the composer himself did not, for obvious reasons) squares the circle nicely.

Ward, NancyCurriculum GuidesPage EditPainful article! Uses anachronistic descriptions and links right in the "lead" of the article - says, for example, she believed in "peaceful coexistence" and links that to a page on socialist philosophies of peaceful coexistence, yikes! It's only ranked a "C class" article right now but is rated as "high importance" by the Wikiproject Women's History, so I think we should work on it and try to move it up to "GA," or "Good Article," so that it can be used as a Featued Article sometime. https://www.nyhistory.org/womens-history/education/curriculum/saving-washington/module-2-breaking-the-rules-women/life-stories/nancy-ward-nanyehi

We have so much in our curriculum guides on Coverture, we can fix this! https://www.nyhistory.org/womens-history/education/curriculum/saving-washington/module-1-unofficial-politician/resources/resource-1-covertureWe also have excellent videos on Coverture in the MOOC, particularly those with leading legal historian Linda Kerber: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=women+have+always+worked+coverture

Founding Mothers? Create PageThere is no page just on "revolutionary women" but it is such a fascinating topic! I am basically suggesting we follow the Carol Berkins approach to this matter, outlining camp followers, Tory women, Native Amerian women who took the British side, African women, etc. There is such a rich history here of the various groups of women with their various allegiances during the Revolution - this needs to be up on Wikipedia! http://blog.nyhistory.org/late-breaking-news-revolutionary-war-battle-maps/

It's not exactly about women but one of the maps depicts both European and Native American women, and it would be an interesting piece to have up online, perhaps we can link it here?
Carol Berkin, clearly.

Women's Strike for EqualityPage EditOh my, this page does not even list the three main goals of this strike, and includes a link to "pro-life feminists" right in the lead, which has no relationship to the strike. While yes, there was backlash, that backlash came in many forms and I think the only reason to include that one particular group of backlash in the lead was out of somebody's ideological motivation. Instead, we should include the three reasons in the lead, and then expand on them and the organizers in the body, and then have a separate section at the bottom called "Backlash," where we can include some Mary Ziegler and still keep the pro-life feminist link but expand on what that actually meant in terms of their relationship to NOW with citations stemming from an actual historian and law scholar.
