    Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR)!
    Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's representation on all language Wikipedias (biographies, women's works, women's issues, broadly construed). Did you know that, according to Humaniki, only 19.83% 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. Editors of all genders are equally and warmly welcome at Women in Red!

    Once again in December and January we are focusing on notable women who died in 2021, from all fields and nationalities. Many of them will have been covered in detail in the obituaries published in newspapers and journals around the world.

    We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about notable women who have recently died, 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 combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
    • to promote the new/improved articles and images through social media and via nominations to Main Page features Did You Know…? and 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]

    We have red-link lists on women from all relevant fields, which can be found in our redlist index. A selection of those which might be most useful for this priority is listed below.
