    Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR)!
    Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's representation on all language Wikipedias (biographies, women's works, women's issues, broadly construed). Did you know that, according to Humaniki, only 19.75% 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. Editors of all genders are equally and warmly welcome at Women in Red!

    • Editathon banner: {{WIR-158}}

    In March 2020, Women in Red is collaborating with The Great Britain/Ireland Destubathon by providing an opportunity for you to create or improve articles on past or present women who were born in England, Scotland, Wales, the island of Ireland, the Isle or Man or the Channel Islands, or who have close associations with one or more of these. Special attention could for example be given to those who have received the highest official honours. You may also write articles about the works women have created, the literature they have written or their companies and organizations.

    Anyone can take part in this event. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about women from Great Britain and Ireland, as well as their achievements, writings, organizations, and awards. This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts wherever they may be to participate in our initiative. Contributors are of course also welcome to add articles on any other notable women who deserve to be covered, for example under our #1day1woman priority.

    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)

    The destubathon (with prizes!) aims to improve existing stubs by expanding them, usually to at least 1200 bytes of readable prose. You are invited to register as a participant in the destubathon as well as in this WiR editathon, and to record any "destubbed" articles both on this page and on the destubathon outcomes pages.

    What else?

    • Below, you'll see a section where you can list the articles you create this month, and another section where you can add the images you have uploaded to Commons.
    • This essay on creating women's biographies and our Ten Simple Rules might be helpful to newer editors.
    • 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.

    Redlists (lists of redlinked articles to be created)[edit]

    A wide variety of redlink lists can be found on our Redlist index. Some of those relating to Great Britain and Ireland are listed below:

    • Gabrielle Reidy (1960-2014), Irish actress, surprised to discover she didn't even have a stub; plenty of sources:[1][2][3]
