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 18.09% 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!

Each year, during the month of November, Women in Red collaborates with the Wikipedia Asian Month organizing team to facilitate a month-long event encouraging coverage of Asian women. This year's event runs from 1 to 30 November 2019. This will help overcome the content gender gap in Asian content. All are welcome to participate, both inexperienced and seasoned editors. Articles should focus on women from Asia (whether born in Asia or gaining notability there). The virtual editathon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the event. See the list of red-linked Asian Women for guidance.

Asian Women Month observes the Wikipedia Asian Month 2019 rules.

You can use this event's talk page if you need assistance or wish to comment on Wikipedia Asian Month 2019.

The main goals of the event are:

  • to contribute to qualitative and quantitative improvements in women's biographies on the English Wikipedia;
  • 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).
