    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!

    Inspired by Ada Lovelace Day on 11 October, once again this October we will be focusing on women in STEM, not forgetting environmentalists, sci-fi writers, and all others whose work touches these fields.

    We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about women in all fields of science around the world, as well as their achievements, writings, organizations, and awards. 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 notable 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 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. WiR also maintains a list of biographical resources to aid in searching for sources.
    • If you share any of the articles on social media, please indicate this 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.

    Crowd-sourced (CS) and Wikidata (WD) red-link lists: women's biographies in other language versions of Wikipedia:

    Note: for those listed in the Dictionary of Women Worldwide, some corresponding entries may be found at or, for access to all, by signing up for the Wikipedia Library's free bundle and then using this search option.
