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 17.67% 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!

Dates 21 November to 15 December 2016
Location Join this Women in Red virtual, global event, and you can participate from anywhere in the world.

Celebrating BBC 100 Women

Wikimedia BBC 100 Women is a partnership between the BBC and Wikimedia. Its objective is to raise awareness of the gender gap on Wikipedia, improve coverage of women and encourage women to edit. BBC 100 Women is one of the BBC’s most successful news series which names 100 influential and inspirational women around the world every year, creating documentaries, features and interviews with them, as a way to look at women’s rights around the world. It is broadcast on the BBC World Service’s TV, radio and online services in 28 languages and to reach global audiences of over 320 million a week. The series is entering its fourth year in 2016 and will be on air between 21st November to 8th December.

There are three ways you can participate!

  1. Virtual participation: Women in Red will facilitate a virtual editathon from 21 November to 15 December, extending a week beyond the dates set by the BBC. Anyone, anywhere, can participate anytime.
  2.
