Following on from the success of The Africa Destubathon in autumn 2016 in which brought over 2000 improvements for Africa, the Women in Red World Contest will be held for one month in November 2017. The contest has a focus on creating new biographies of women for every country on the planet and every field of occupation. It is all about diversity of content and widespread coverage and tackling systematic bias.

This sub-part of the contest focus more specifically on African feminists and is co-organized by Wiki Loves Women and Les sans pagEs.

As part of this contest:

  • only biographies of African feminists will be considered
  • biographies can be created from scratch, translated from another language, or improved from a stub (very short article) or reviewed/copyedited from already existing articles
  • lists are proposed below. However, feel free to add names to the list (if so, do try to make sure the person is notable enough to have a wikipedia article)
  • prices will go to the hardest working.
    • $140 ($50, $40, $30, $20) will go to the most articles created related to "women in Feminism, in Africa"
    • $60 ($40, $20) will go to the most articles destubbed/improved/reviewed related to "Women in Feminism, in Africa".
