Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography

Scope

The Biography WikiProject concerns the creation, development, and organization of Wikipedia's articles about persons (including but not limited to biographies). It includes only articles about individual persons, not about an organization or group or association, unless a substantial section of the article is a biography of a person related to that organization or group. It includes biographies of only real humans; thus, the project does not cover other animals or fictitious persons (such as pseudonyms) or fictional characters. As of 26 September 2021, there are 1,865,107 articles and 6,321 lists within the scope of WikiProject Biography, of which 1,692 are featured and 7,008 are good articles. As of 1 April 2021 according to WHGI and based on wikidata, only 337,764 of Wikipedia's 1,796,746 biographies are about women, amounting to 18.799%.
