Hello and welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR) whose objective is to turn redlinks into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's biographies and women's works. Did you know that according to WHGI only 16.99% 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!
Wiki Loves Pride is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group.

Women in Red is hosting a virtual editathon from June 1 to 30, 2017, on LGBTQ women with Wiki Loves Pride.

The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work. 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)

Focus and lists of red links

Women in Red is focusing on LGBTQ Women (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer women). Anyone can take part in this event, 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 LGBTQ women who are still red-linked on the English Wikipedia. Other articles regarding LGBTQ women, such as the works they created, and so on, are also welcome. The virtual edit-a-thon allows enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in the work.
