Women in Red is running a ten-day virtual editathon from December 5 to 15. Anyone can take part 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 in religion who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. See the list of red-linked women in religion articles to be created for guidance.

The main goals of the edit-a-thon 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

Articles to be created[edit]

Maria Stella de Azevedo Santos [pt] Brazilian Iyalorixá
Mãe Carmem [pt] Brazilian Iyalorixá
  • There is a list of historic and/or prominent women in this evolving, crowd-sourced list of red-linked articles broken down by countries here.
  • And there is an article with ordination background, names and red-links here.
  • And a User's list of red-links here.
  • Another list of red-links (based on number of articles in other language Wikipedias) here.
