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 19.39% 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 September 2021, Women in Red is once again focusing on women writers and their works from around the world. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of some of the many notable women writers, past and present, who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. Other articles related to women and writing, such as the works they have created, their organizations and their awards, are also encouraged.

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 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. Women Do News is also having a training on September 15 on finding sources to write biographies of women journalists.
  • If you share any of the articles or images to social media, 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. Some of the most relevant to this priority are listed below.

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

For a general but incomplete world listing of red-linked writers, see Writers
