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 Humaniki, only 19.45% 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!

We first thought of Stage+Screen but then decided to extend it to Stage+Screen+Radio+Podcast so that we could include women associated with any of the behind-the-scenes occupations in stage productions or broadcasting: directors, screenwriters, producers, cinemaphotographers and editors, to name just a few. In connection with radio, we are also focusing on narrators and podcasters as well as pioneers. In order to attract wider collaboration, we hope to collaborate with wikiprojects on Television, Film, Stagecraft, Theatre, Musical Theatre, Radio, and Podcasting. Those involved in AfroCine Months of African Cinema which is continuing until 30 November are also welcome. The redlists below should help you to cover women from all the related occupations.

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 associated with stage productions and broadcasting around the world, 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 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]

We have red-link lists on women from all relevant fields, which can be found in our redlist index. A selection of those which might be most useful for this priority is listed below.
