Welcome to WikiProject Women Scientists, a WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biographies of women scientists. Unfortunately, part of Wikipedia's systemic bias is that women in science are woefully underrepresented. Let's change that!

Writing biographies:



Since biographies are potentially under the purview of almost all WikiProjects, it is important that we work in tandem with these projects. Also, when seeking collaboration on articles, don't neglect to approach WikiProjects that are part of the geographical region your subject is/was in.
