Women in RedRedlist
Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR). Our objective is to turn redlinks into blue ones. Our scope is women's biographies, women's works, and women's issues, broadly construed.

This is a list with redlinks; we call it a Redlist but others might refer to it as a Work List or a Task List. It may be:

  • curated/crowd-sourced (If the list is crowd-sourced, it's likely to be incomplete and under-developed, so you can help by adding to it. If you know of a missing article(s) which belongs on this page, please add to the sections below or start a new section if none of the existing sections is a good fit (it doesn't matter if your redlink is the only one in a section). )
  • include the contents of a dictionary
  • include the contents of a webpage

This list is intended to serve as a basis for creating new articles in an important but somewhat neglected sector on the English Wikipedia. Of course, all new articles must satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria, so keep in mind that redlinks on this list may or may not qualify. Note: some of the items listed here may have articles in other language Wikipedias, but many have not yet been covered in any Wikipedia; translation assistance is welcome. Feel free to remove any links that turn blue.
