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 19.56% 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!

In 2021, Women in Red is focusing on women's rights as a year-long initiative.

Anyone can take part in this event. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about notable women who have recently passed away, including their writings or other works.

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 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) and via nominations to In The News.

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, upload any of the images to Pinterest, or successfully nominate for In The News, 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. Those relating to women's rights, broadly-construed, are listed below:

  • African-American suffragists (WD)
  • Trade unionists (WD)
Politicians by country (WD)

Add other red links here, if possible with a source:

  • Institute on Statelessness and Inclusion[1],[2],[3],[4] (Note: first link provides a bunch of affiliated academics in the field of human rights/statelessness studies. It's currently a redirect, but since they launched a peer reviewed journal and do publishing[5] seems like it should be a separate article.)
