#Guggathon Women in Architecture 2015 logo

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, Women in Design, and Wikiproject Women Wikipedia Design, are sponsoring the #Guggathon Women in Architecture Wikipedia edit-a-thon, a global campaign of editing event for improving and increasing the presence of cultural, historic, and artistic information on Wikipedia pertaining to the lives and works of women in architecture.

With keystone events scheduled for Thursday October 15 in New York City and elsewhere, the campaign aims to further the goals of Ada Lovelace Day for STEM, and Art+Feminism for art, in a field that by its nature combines both.

In this connection, Women in Red is running a virtual editathon from 15 to 25 October. Anyone can take part whatever your previous experience. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies of some of the many past and present notable women in architecture who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. See the List of red-linked articles to be created below for guidance.

The main goals of the edit-a-thon 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 on a specific area
  • to support Wikipedia in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works

A list of red-linked articles by country is given below for guidance. Feel free to add any further red links to notable women in architecture, preferably backed by a pertinent link.

WiR redlist index: 3

Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR). Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our scope is women's biographies, women's works, and women's issues, broadly construed.

This list of red links is intended to serve as a basis for creating new articles on the English Wikipedia. All new articles must satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria; red links on this list may or may not qualify.
