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!

This June, as in previous years, in collaboration with Wiki Loves Pride, Women in Red is focusing on LGBTQ+ women (including lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, nonbinary and other queer or GNC people).

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about LGBTQ+ women, as well as their achievements, writings, organizations, and awards. This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts wherever they may be to participate in our initiative.

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 this 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)

  • Draft:Chen Arieli despite numerous attempts to improve the article, it can’t get approved by administration. You address the issue(s) provided for it being declined, and another issue pops up when you submit it again. - Hi! I just revamped the Arieli article to comply with BLP standards, including significant additional research. If someone wants to put finishing touches on the article now, it should address most of the Wiki editor issues. Happy to discuss! Dblu9494 (talk) 20:24, 28 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
