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 19.33% 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!

  • Editathon banner: {{WIR-206}}

Every August, we give special attention to Indigenous women from around the world. We hope both new contributors and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies about Indigenous women, as well as articles on their achievements, writings, organizations, and awards. You can of course also write 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 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

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 share any of the articles on social media (thank you!), please indicate you have done so next to the article name.

Redlists (lists of redlinked articles to be created)[edit]

We have a wide variety of red-link lists. In addition to those on women from pertinent countries, the following should be particularly useful in identifying indigenous women who deserve to be covered:
