How to categorize these profiles of famous women

+7 votes

I get a Facebook feed from the Historical Society of Cheshire County (New Hampshire).  Lately they are profiling  'famous' local women.  I have been creating WT profiles for each if not already there (most aren't).  I don't know if there is a way to categorize or label them so others can find them.  All interesting stories.  

Today I'll add "Jane Grace Alexander" (pioneer woman banker).  I've added  Eames-1188 (world's first Avon Lady), Jennings-9282 (One of five US official women consultants at UN Charter conference San Francisco 1945) and Catherine Fiske-1401 (who opened The Female Seminary in Keene, NH a celebrated school for young women.)  I was hoping some project would include these women.  Just looking for a way to make them more visible.  Thanks. Profile advice always welcome......

I think most would fit into [[Category:Trailblazing Women]].

That looks perfect.  I found the category (hadn't known where to look) and wonder if I can just go ahead and use it or does someone review the "bestowal"?
Since there does not seem to be a project overseeing this, you're probably fine adding the category, provided the reasons why they are trailblazing women are explained in the biography... With a source, of course ;-)
