Ground RulesEdit

  1. Wheaton's Law: Don't Be A Dick!
  2. The general goal here is to showcase all people who, at any point in their life, have been subject to a lack of perceived-male privilege, so we're about women/female-identified creators. Men can be mentioned insofar as they are directly relevant to a woman's life/career.
  3. Let me repeat that bit about female-identified creators. There is a zero-tolerance policy for trans-bigotry. The creator's preferred pronouns are to be used at all times.
  4. To clarify, non-female-identified non-binary creators are also welcome, regardless of gender assignment at birth, provided they personally are comfortable being included. If you are a non-binary creator who wants to be on here, go for it. If you know of a non-binary creator you want to make a page for but don't have their explicit permission to put them on here, don't put them on here until/unless you get that permission.
  5. "Wait, 'people who, at any point in their life, have been subject to a lack of perceived-male privilege' could include trans men." Yeah, it could. Same rule as with non-binary people: as long as they personally are comfortable being included.
  6. Original research is welcome; actual conversations with creators/associates/historians should be cited as "Personal Correspondence with (username)".
  7. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you're not sure about something!

More Specific RulesEdit

  1. Our purpose is tied to the respect of women creators. Therefore, living creators have the right to request the removal of any information for any reason, and expect it will remain excised. Such information currently includes:

Creator Pages Edit

See: Creator Outline

Creator's pages should generally be named after their most common credit name. See the Creator Outline for an idea of where to start. At a bare minimum, a creator page should have an introductory sentence and at least a partial bibliography. For all dates, link to a page for the month and day, then add the information to that page.

Event Date PagesEdit

If no page for a given date currently exists, create one on a blank page. Organize the page, with the information available, like so:

* (Year) - [[Creator]]

* (Year) - [[Creator]]

[[Category:Events|(1-9 for January-September, and A-C for October-December), (day number)]]

Occasionally other dates, such a marriage or character/strip/book debuts will be sufficiently notable to be included.

You can leave it there for now, but if you'd like to help get the list displayed on the front page on its day, here how you do that: Rename it as a Template (in the drop-down menu next to the page name field), making sure to leave a redirect behind. Then click Edit again and do this:


When you click save, it will ask what kind of template it is; scroll down and click "Non-article".
