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 19.31% 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 March 2021, we are collaborating again with the Art+Feminism community as an online node supporting a focus on women, activism, and the arts. While all articles on women artists and feminism are welcome in our efforts to address the gender gap, this year we are placing special emphasis on women of color, non-binary women and immigrants, including their art and other works.

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 in the arts and activism, as well as their works, organizations, and other achievements. 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, 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 or 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, post them to Instagram or upload any of the images to Pinterest, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.
