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 19.65% 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 February 2022 Women in Red's focus returns to women in sport for a two-month event. While television may be focusing on the Olympic and Paralympic Games, i.e. the 2022 Winter Olympics (4–20 February) and the 2022 Winter Paralympics (4–13 March), we also want to work more generally on women in sports, not just the competitors, players, teams and clubs but the many notable female support staff, coaches, referees, managers and sponsors. The lists of redlinks below provide an indication of the wide scope we intend to cover.

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about women associated with the Games and as well as those notable for their contributions to sports, both today and yesterday. This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts wherever they may be to participate. Contributors are also welcome to add 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 some of the world's most prominent women
  • to draw the attention of more experienced editors to the need for concerted action 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 post about any of the articles on social media, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.
