    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 19.83% 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!

    In September 2020, Women in Red is once again focusing on women writers and their works from around the world. Although we welcome the creation of articles on any of the notable women writers around the world, we would like to include some of those associated in one way or another with World War II, for example those who were born or died between 1939 and 1945 or who were active during the war itself. It has also been suggested we should give attention to those involved in TV or radio and to those from non-English speaking countries whose works have been translated into English or have led to films distributed around the world.

    We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of some of the many past and present notable women writers and journalists that are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. Other articles regarding women and writing, such as the works they have created, their organizations and awards, are also welcome.

    The main goals of the event are:

    • to encourage inexperienced editors and show them how they can contribute to Wikipedia by creating biographies of 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?

    • 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]

    Red-link lists on women from a wide variety of fields can be accessed from the WiR Redlink index. A selection of those which might be most useful for this priority is listed below.
