WiR redlist index: Caribbean

Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR). Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our scope is women's biographies, women's works, and women's issues, broadly construed.

This list of red links is intended to serve as a basis for creating new articles on the English Wikipedia. All new articles must satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria; red links on this list may or may not qualify. Lists that are not updated by ListeriaBot (talk) need to be updated manually.

  • NOTE This link to the University of the West Indies databases has [1] links to Caribbean newspaper clippings and other documentation which may be helpful.

Not sure if she and her sister Elizabeth below should be written together as the Hart Sisters, or separately. I lean to separately, as they were each notable in their own rights, but sources cover them together almost always.
