Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red/Meetup/309

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Welcome to WikiProject Women in Red (WiR)!
    Our objective is to turn red links into blue ones. Our project's scope is women's representation on all language Wikipedias (biographies, women's works, women's issues, broadly construed). Did you know that, according to Humaniki, only 19.85% 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. Editors of all genders are equally and warmly welcome at Women in Red!

    Ongoing initiatives: #1day1woman Education

    Every June, to coincide with World Music Day on the 21st, we encourage coverage of women musicians and music composed by women. This includes musicians in any genre, e.g. from rock to chamber music and beyond. We are targeting women who are notable as soloists, instrumentalists, or performing in bands, orchestras or chamber groups. Then there are composers, conductors, choirs, individual singers and educators, as well as musicologists, music critics and folklorists. There may be interesting opportunities to cover historical opera singers, perhaps on the basis of articles in other language versions of Wikipedia.

    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.

    Thank you!
