Women in Red
Hi there, LorriBrown, and welcome to Women in Red. I'm pleased to hear you are interested in writing articles about Canadian artists and writers. In this connection, you might find it useful to look through our Ten Simple Rules. Unless you have some ideas of your own, you might find the names of interesting women on our Canada red link list which shows the names of Canadian women who have been covered in other language versions of Wikipedia but not yet in English. Please let me know if you run into any difficulties or need assistance. Happy editing!--Ipigott (talk) 08:30, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

The article looks fine to me. I could not find any references to Linda Brock but perhaps that name is included in one of your sources. If you have a reliable source, you could include the alternative name in the lead. Some use of the artist's CV is in order, providing the other sources used give evidence of her notability. I've deactivated the categories as the article is still a draft. You can reactivate them again when you move it into mainspace.--Ipigott (talk) 08:07, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
- Ipigott Thank you for taking a look. It is just the one article in 2003 for Galleries West. Search as I may in google could not locate the other articles that do not have references. Do you have any tips on researching. I have had the hardest time with this article in particular. Changing search strings does not seem to help. Is there a place where we can go to research magazine articles. I've found some good newspaper articles on some of the biographies but not this lady. Not sure why. Oh, I didn't realize I had done that with the categories, when I placed them into the article. I'll take a look to see how you changed it. I've submitted for AfC approval. Fingers crossed. :-) Do appreciate your help! LorriBrown (talk) 01:10, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
- You might find it useful to join the Newspaperarchive but until you gain more experience, I would recommend you stick with articles on people who are covered in sources you can find on the internet. That also makes it easier for the reviewers who assess your articles.--Ipigott (talk) 06:33, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello! I saw your note on the Joan Almond talk page. Feel free to revert my edit, but my reasoning was as follows. I have been making many stubs on women artists lately, and for the older ones in particular, the easiest available information is often who they were married to, because this is what was published 50 or 100 years ago. I think that reflects an out of date patriarchal notion of women: let's describe their family attachments first. I think we need to get past that and describe first their accomplishments in life, as the early press would have done had they not been patriarchal. It amounts to the same kind of thing as when a female political candidate's clothes are described in news reporting. Second, I tend to see the personal life section last in articles. And finally, the personal life is, well, personal and not as encyclopedic as their accomplishments. SO there is my 2 cents, but feel free to revert if you feel it helps the article flow.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 22:43, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
- ThatMontrealIP I don't want to revert your edit and was nervous that you might think my inquiry was challenging the change. Thank you so much for your reply. It makes perfect sense. :- ) LorriBrown (talk) 23:41, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
