Guggenheim Museum in New York City, Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, Women in Design, Wikiproject Women Wikipedia Design and WikiProject Women in Red, in sponsoring the #Guggathon Women in Architecture Wikipedia edit-a-thon global campaign of editing events for improving and increasing the presence of cultural, historic, and artistic information on Wikipedia pertaining to the lives and works of women in architecture.

To-Do[edit]

WiR redlist index: Women in Architecture


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.
