Welcome to WikiProject Women Scientists, a WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biographies of women scientists. Unfortunately, part of Wikipedia's systemic bias is that women in science are woefully underrepresented. Let's change that!

How you can help[edit]

Low-hanging fruit[edit]

Here are a few places to start in bridging the representation gap for women in science on Wikipedia:

  1. translate articles about women scientists from and into other language Wikipedias (some suggestions)
  2. support nominations of women scientists to be included in vital article collections
  3. [open suggestions]

Writing biographies:



Since biographies are potentially under the purview of almost all WikiProjects, it is important that we work in tandem with these projects. Also, when seeking collaboration on articles, don't neglect to approach WikiProjects that are part of the geographical region your subject is/was in.
