The New York Academy of Sciences is sponsoring a Women in Science Wikipedia edit-a-thon, an editing event for improving and increasing the coverage of historic, technical and biographical information on Wikipedia pertaining to the lives and works of women in science. The event is to be launched in the afternoon of Sunday, November 22 in New York City and will continue over the following week.

In this connection, Women in Red, in close cooperation with WikiProject Women scientists, is running a three-week virtual editathon from November 8 to 29. Anyone can take part whatever their 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 science 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 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

Articles to be created[edit]

  • There is a list of historic and/or prominent female members of the New York Academy of Sciences here.
  • And there is an evolving, crowd-sourced list of red-linked articles broken down by scientific sectors and countries here.
  • Or create an article about one of the redlinked women whose photographs appears in this section (hint: each has an article on another language Wikipedia).
  • Or pick from one of these (references provided):
