Wikiproject OutreachEdit

The purpose of this page is to plan & record outreach from Women in Red to other Wikiprojects. Right now, that largely boils down to:

  • addition of WiR Redlists to their Task & ToDo lists
  • periodic checks that WiR Redlists remain on their Task & ToDo lists
  • talk-page posts drawing attention to WiR and its redlists
  • creation of redlists appropriate to wikiprojects


  • Sample talk-page paragraph, for posting on Wikiprojects' talk pages
[[File:Women in Red logo.svg|thumb|100px|[[Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red|WikiProject Women in Red]] wants your biographies]]
I have taken the liberty of adding a link from this project's collaboration section (diff), to a redlist of [[redlist link]] for whom we have no biography article. Right now, there are five times as many biographies of men as there are of women on wikipedia - see the [ Wikidata Human Gender Indicators] page. I hope this project will lend its support to addressing this imbalance by creating biographies for women within your project's scope. More generally, [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red|WikiProject Women in Red]] has very many redlists covering perhaps 100,000 notable women for whom we have no biography. thanks
