This is an essay.
It contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. This page is not an encyclopedia article, nor is it one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, as it has not been thoroughly vetted by the community. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.
When writing about women on Wikipedia, ensure articles do not use sexist language, perpetuate sexist stereotypes or otherwise demonstrate a prejudice against women.
As of June 2019, 16.7% of editors on the English Wikipedia who have declared a gender say they are female. The gender disparity, together with the need for reliable sources, contributes to the gender imbalance of our content; as of November 2020, only 18.64% of our biographies are about women. This page may help to identify the subtle and more obvious ways in which titles, language, images, and linking practices can discriminate against women.
