Women in RedAbout us


Hello! and welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR), whose objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's biographies and women's works, broadly construed. Did you know that, according to WHGI, only 18.09% 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!

Celebrating Women Scientists

Year of Science Logo.svg
Women Science.png

Founded by Wiki Education Foundation, Year of Science is a year-long event to improve the coverage of science on Wikipedia. In this connection, Women in Red and WikiProject Women scientists are collaborating from April through December on a campaign to increase the coverage of women scientists.

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. Contribute at your own pace.

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
