CSBRelevant for Countering systemic bias

Welcome to WikiProject Women in Music, a WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biographies of women in music. Unfortunately, part of Wikipedia's systemic bias is that women in music are underrepresented. Let's change that!

  • works by women musicians

Get involvedEdit

  • Tag the talk pages of relevant articles with the {{WikiProject Women in music}} banner so they can be automatically added to Category:WikiProject Women in music articles. See the Assessment page for further information.
  • Improve categorization of articles (see the category tree).
  • Create or translate a woman writer's biography; a redlinks list is maintained at Missing Articles List.
  • Expand or improve women writer biographies.
  • Cite edits with reliable sources. Content that isn't cited can be removed!
  • Remove templates from article pages after you successfully complete the task or fix the problem.
  • Requested tasks: Sometimes a larger cleanup activity needs a little more help than one editor can do. If you have a project that would be best completed with community help, add it here (please add tasks as bulleted (*) tasks so that they can be easily tracked below). This lists should not be for listing individual pages to work on: this is part of the reason for the article assessment system described elsewhere on this page. Rather, try to propose more systematic projects.
  • Find inspiration in example articles: The articles in the Featured article and Good article categories can provide examples of good layout and content coverage.
