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 17.39% 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 are hosting a virtual editathon from 1 to 31 January 2018 geographically focused on the Great Britain and Ireland, providing an opportunity for you to create or improve articles on past or present women who were born in England, Scotland, Wales, the island of Ireland, the Isle or Man or the Channel Islands, or who have close associations with one or more of these. Special attention could for example be given to those who have received the highest official honours. You may also write articles about the works women have created, the literature they have written or their companies and organizations.

The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work.

  • 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)
