Campaign: 1000 Women in Religion Project 2020

The 1000 Women in Religion Project, a major initiative of the American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature’s Women’s Caucus, is working to add biographies to Wikipedia, where over 80% of biographical entries are about men. A deficit of reliable sources about women important to the history and ongoing unfolding of the world’s religious and wisdom traditions makes it difficult for our wiki-editors to meet Wikipedia’s sourcing and notability standards for submission. Come create and edit Wikipedia pages on women (including transgender women, nonbinary and genderqueer persons) in support of our effort to address this systemic gender bias. Learn how Wikipedia works and join its community of editors.
