Hello and welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR) whose objective is to turn redlinks into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's biographies and women's works. Did you know that according to WHGI only 16.92% 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. Women in Red warmly welcomes you!

Women in Red is hosting a virtual editathon from April 1 to 30, 2017, on Women in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe in support of the Wikimedia emphasis on the CEE countries for Spring 2017.

The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. 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
  • to promote the new/improved articles and images through social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter)

Focus and lists of red links[edit]

The objective is to create or improve articles on women from the Countries of Central and Eastern Europe which include Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. In addition to biographies, we welcome articles on women's works, their achievements, their writings and their organizations.

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

The Meta Wikimedia site on CEE Spring 2017 presents article lists for the countries and language communities of Central and Eastern Europe based on Wikidata. By clicking on each country, you can find a listing which includes prominent "Women". The names in black rather than blue are women who do not yet have biographies on the English Wikipedia. Basic Wikidata information and access to articles in other languages on these women can be found by clicking on the Q item in the Wikidata column.

In addition we have Wikidata red link lists on women from all the countries mentioned which can be found in the Women in Red navbox. A selection of these is listed below.
