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 19.70% 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!

From July 2022 to June 2023, Women in Red is embarking on their first collective "alphabet run", where editors work consecutively through the letters of the English alphabet. The September 2022 letters are E and F, and can be applied to any first, middle or last name of a subject e.g. Eva Scott Fényes, or individuals named like Edmonia Lewis or Helen Frankenthaler would both be appropriate.

  • July 2022 - A & B
  • August 2022 - C & D
  • September 2022 - E & F
  • October 2022 - G & H
  • November 2022 - I & J
  • December 2022 - K & L
  • January 2023 - M & N
  • February 2023 - O & P
  • March 2023 - Q & R
  • April 2023 - S & T
  • May 2023 - U, V, W
  • June 2023 - X, Y & Z

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about notable women.

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 the topics of the month or our comprehensive #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 in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
  • to promote the new and 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 month by 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 images on social media, or successfully nominate for Main Page, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.

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

A wide variety of redlink lists can be found on our Redlist index. Any of these lists can be used to find subjects who may have a first, middle or last name, beginning with E or F. Editors can click the column header to rearrange names into alphabetical order.

There are a wide variety of dictionaries and other reference works available, some that editors might consider are:
