Wiki Loves Women South Asia.svg

Welcome to WikiProject Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2021! This contest creates and improves articles about the gender gap and women's empowerment. This contest exists specifically for the September 2021 event, in which we improve the quality of existing articles related to women and categorize and link them in appropriate ways. If you want to enter the contest or serve as a contest judge, add your name to the list.

The Simple English Wikipedia is eligible to host a branch of this contest because simple English is one of the many languages spoken and used in southern Asia. Not all contest entries have to be articles about women in southern Asia.

The Fountain Page for this editathon is here.

Contestants may join at any time before the end of September 2021.
