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 19.69% 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 February, Women in Red’s geofocus is on Hong Kong and Macau, special administrative regions of China. There are also five autonomous regions in China: Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Tibet Autonomous Region, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in improving biographies and other articles about notable women, including their writings or other works. This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts wherever they may be to participate in our initiative.

Main goals

  • to encourage inexperienced editors and show them how they can contribute to Wikipedia by creating or improving 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 have worked on 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 or their images on social media, or successfully nominate for In The News, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.
