Women in Religion WikiProject

Two women from the Women in Religion WikiProject are editing on laptop and phone

The Women in Religion Wiki Project is an initiative to create, update, and improve Wikimedia content pertaining to the lives of cis-gender and trans-gender women who are notable as scholars, activists and practitioners in the world's religious, spiritual and wisdom traditions. Among other efforts, we are working towards the goal of adding one thousand women's biographies to Wikipedia. As of June 2022, our project has added or improved more than 200 Wikipedia articles.

All are invited to contribute and join in our activities; there are many ways to help and no specialized knowledge of content or editing is required. Trainings and edit-a-thons are held regularly for new editors interested in learning to edit Wikipedia or Wikidata. This Meetup page will be used to post details about ongoing activities and events.

The Women in Religion WikiProject organizing committee meets monthly. If you would like to participate in these meetings contact Dzingle1 or click the event link below.

  • Host: Women in Religion (formerly 1000 Women in Religion)

  • Time: Ongoing

If you're in Chicago and not in Singapore for Wikimania 2023, please consider joining us at our first in-person editathon in over three years, Tuesday, August 15. See here for more information.

This WikiProject was launched as "1000 Women in Religion" at the 2018 Parliament of the World's Religions in Toronto, Canada, with the support of the Women's Task Force at the 2018 Parliament and the Women's Caucus of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. Its focus was to add one thousand women's biographies to Wikipedia to address the gender gap. Since its founding, the WikiProject has continually expanded, with affiliated Wikimedians working on regional projects in Australia, India, and Kenya. In addition to adding and improving content in Wikipedia, project members have contributed to Wikidata, WikiCommons, and WikiQuote. In 2022, the project's name was changed to Women in Religion to reflect this broader range of activity.

Women in Religion series[edit]

In addition to writing, creating, and improving biographies about Women in Religion on Wikipedia, one of the goals of WikiProject Women in Religion is to increase content about them in the general scholarship. Our strategy is to provide secondary sources for Wikipedia editors and contributors to use to increase the content about women in religion on Wikipedia. To that end, we have participated in the publication of, as of the summer of 2023, three volumes of monographs, published by Atla Open Press and the Parliament of the World's Religions.

If you would like to participate in this endeavor, please visit Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Religion/Women in Religion series for more information and for lists of the women featured in this series.

In the summer of 2023, four members of WikiProject Women in Religion (Clifford Anderson, Dzingle1, Figureskatingfan, and RosPost) conducted a study using Artificial intelligence large language models to ascertain their usefulness in editing Wikipedia articles and biographies. As of 21 June 2023, the team is in the middle of conducting this study, in preparation for a presentation they will make at Wikimania 2023.
