Women in RedAbout us


Hello! and welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR), whose objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's biographies and women's works, broadly construed. Did you know that, according to WHGI, only 17.89% of the English Wikipedia's biographies are about women? Not impressed? Content gender gap is a form of systemic bias, and this is what WiR addresses. We invite you to participate, whenever you like, in whatever way suits you and your schedule.
Women in Red warmly welcomes you!

Celebrating Women Writers

In April 2016, Women in Red is focusing on women writers. Anyone can take part in this event, whatever their previous experience. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of some of the many past and present notable women writers and journalists who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. Other articles regarding women and writing, such as the works they created, and so on, are also welcome. The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. See the list of red links for guidance.

The main goals of the event are:

  • to encourage inexperienced editors and show them how they can contribute to Wikipedia by creating biographies of some of the world's most prominent women
  • to draw the attention of more experienced editors to the need for concerted action on a specific area
  • to support Wikipedia in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
