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 19.12% 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!

From January to March 2020, we are holding the second of our three-month virtual contests devoted to women from the continents of the world. Following the October to December 2020 Women in Asia contest we are continuing with Africa as it will coincide with Black History Month in February.

The prizes will be virtual in the form of recognition of the top three contributors for each of the three months with special recognition for the top contributor over the full three-month period.

In line with other Wikipedia contests, articles must have at least 160 words or 1,000 characters of running text (excluding references, lists, boxes and headings) and should have at least two reliable secondary references. While we encourage the creation of women's biographies, articles addressing the works or achievements of African women will also qualify. Articles which are not long enough can be listed separately but will not be taken into account for the contest.

In order to participate, contributors must be members of Women in Red. Anyone can register as a member by using the box on the main WiR page.

Please use this article's talk page if you need assistance or wish to comment on the contest.

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of the many past and present notable women from Africa, whatever their occupation or role. While our top priority is new biographies, articles about the works, organizations or achievements of African women are also welcome.

The main goals of the event are:

  • to extend coverage of African women on the English Wikipedia
  • 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 this specific area
  • to support Wikipedia in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
  • to promote new 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.
  • 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. Those which might be most useful for African women are listed below.

Wikidata red-link lists: women's biographies by country in other language versions of Wikipedia, as well as a few that are crowd-sourced:

Newly-created articles which meet contest rules: March[edit]

Please list in the order created (i.e. the oldest at the top). Participants should then list further articles immediately below the first article they create. This will help to establish the number of articles created by each participant. The sequence should be:

# {{flagicon|country}} [[article title]] new article by ~~~~, the four tildes representing user name and date created.
Remember articles need to have a running text or readable prose size of 160 words or 1,000 characters. Articles which are not long enough may be listed separately under "Newly-created articles which do not meet contest rules: March". You can check the length of any article by using Xtools article info and looking under "Prose" for characters and words. (Please do not use this tool to check more than two or three articles at a time or you will overload the system.)
