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 17.78% 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!

Women in Red has a special initiative for the whole of 2019 which brings focus to Suffrage. This provides opportunities for creating articles on suffragists, suffragettes and anti-suffragists, including their organizations, events and achievements.

While several countries adopted universal suffrage in earlier years, 1919 was particularly significant in the United States as it was the year when the Constitution was amended to include universal franchise. While there are a number of significant events during the year which should attract attention, editors are free to create or enhance biographies of any important players in the suffrage movement as well as articles on their organizations, events, successes and writings.

During the month of February, it might be useful to take account of significant events in February 1919 from 1919 in women's history:

The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work.

  • 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
  • to promote the new/improved articles and images through social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter)
  • What else?
  • The lists of redlinks should provide inspiration.
  • There is a section where you can list the articles you create this month, and another section where you can add the images you uploaded to Commons.
  • This essay on creating women's biographies and our Ten Simple Rules might be helpful to newcomers.
  • If you tweet about any of the articles, or upload any of the images to Pinterest, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.
