WikiProject Women in Red

Emily Temple-Wood

Welcome to 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.

Quote: "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 17.13% as of 23 October 2017. But that means, according to WHGI, only 255,942 of our 1,493,934 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."
