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 Humaniki, only 19.33% 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!

In October 2018, Women in Red is focusing on women in STEM. We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about women in all fields of interest in these countries, as well as their achievements, writings, organizations, and awards. This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in our initiative. You are of course also welcome to add articles on any other notable women who deserve to be covered.

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)

What else?

  • Below, you'll see a section where you can list the articles you create this month, and another section where you can add the images you have uploaded to Commons.
  • This essay on creating women's biographies and our Ten Simple Rules might be helpful to newer editors.
  • If you tweet about any of the articles, or upload any of the images to Pinterest, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.

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

In addition, we have Crowd-sourced and Wikidata red-link lists on women from all countries can be found in the Women in Red navbox.

Crowd-sourced (CS) and Wikidata (WD) red-link lists: women's biographies in other language versions of Wikipedia:

Add other red links here, if possible with a source:

Works in progress (Drafts, AfCs, AfDs,…)[edit]

You can improve articles that have already been started which match this month's theme but need more work. Drafts may be listed here or on the Crowd-sourced lists above. Editors may list their userspace drafts here if they want assistance. Skilled editors can review articles submitted for creation (AfC). Articles considered for deletion (AfD) can be listed if they need improvements, such as adding citations to establish notability (use WP:HEY when done).
