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 19.75% 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. Editors of all genders are equally and warmly welcome to participate in the work of Women in Red!

Celebrating Caribbean Women

In December 2016, Women in Red is focusing on Caribbean Women. Anyone can take part in this event. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles regarding Caribbean women in all fields of activity. The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. See the list of red-linked Caribbean Women for guidance.

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 on a specific area
  • to support Wikipedia in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
