WikiProject Women in Red

Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR), a WikiProject whose objective is to turn "redlinks" into blue ones within the project scope: women's biographies and works by women.

We recognized a need for this work as, in November 2014, only about 15% of the English Wikipedia's biographies were about women. Founded in July 2015, WiR strives to improve the figure which has reached 17.109% as of 11 September 2017. But that means, according to WHGI, only 253,865 of our 1,484,739 biographies are about women. Not impressed? "Content gender gap" is a form of systemic bias, and WiR addresses it in a positive way through shared values.

Global coverage

  • In addition to our monthy editathons, you can cover women in any sphere of interest by taking part in our #1day1woman initiative. Thanks to its success in August, it will continue over the coming months.
