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 Humaniki, only 19.65% 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!

In June, to coincide with World Music Day on 21st, we are concentrating on women musicians and music composed by women. This includes musicians in any genre, e.g. from rock to chamber music and beyond. Women who are notable as soloists (whatever their instrument, including their voice) or for the part they play in bands, orchestras or chamber groups. There are also composers, conductors, choirs, individual singers and educators. And then there are musicologists, music critics and folklorists.

We hope both inexperienced and seasoned editors will join us in creating biographies and other articles about notable women.

This virtual editathon allows enthusiasts wherever they may be to participate in our initiative. Contributors are of course also welcome to add articles on any other women who deserve to be covered, for example under the topics of the month or our comprehensive #1day1woman priority.

The main goals of the event are:

  • to encourage inexperienced editors and show them how they can contribute to Wikipedia by creating biographies of prominent women
  • to draw the attention of more experienced editors to the need for concerted action in combating the systemic bias against the coverage of women and women's works
  • to promote the new and improved articles and images through social media and via nominations to Main Page features "Did You Know?" and "In The News".

What else?

  • Below, you'll see a section where you can list the articles you create month by month, and another section where you can add the images you have uploaded to Commons.
  • This essay on creating women's biographies and our Ten Simple Rules might be helpful to newer editors.
  • If you share any of the articles or images on social media, or successfully nominate for Main Page, please indicate you have done so next to the article name.

Redlists (lists of redlinked articles to be created)[edit]

A wide variety of redlink lists can be found on our Redlist index. Those relating to musicians of all kinds are listed below:

  • Music (general crowd-sourced list covering various countries)
  • Musicians (created automatically from Wikidata)

There are also individual Wikidata lists of musicians by the instrument they play:
