In the Wikipedia glossary, an orphan is defined as "an article with no links from other pages in the main article namespace".
Below you will find pages with any of the following flags:
Below you will find a list of articles that may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline. Please help to establish notability by citing reliable secondary sources that are independent of the topic and provide significant coverage of it beyond a mere trivial mention. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged, redirected, or deleted. This is a task well suited to more experienced editors, as you will need to determine whether or not this article would pass Wikipedia's notability guidelines and then do the due diligence of adding additional text and citations to make the article stick.
We strongly encourage new editors to begin by working in their Sandbox to create a well cited paragraph that expands existing short articles, which are called Stubs. Here is a list of 2000 stubs. Begin here: Wikipedia:Meetup/ArtAndFeminism/Stubs
If you do choose to begin an article at an Editathon, please check with an experienced Wikipedian prior to beginning to ensure that it meets Notability requirements.

"Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female; more recent research puts that number at 16% globally and 23% in the United States. Further, data analysis tools and computational linguistics studies have concluded that Wikipedia has fewer and less extensive articles on women; those same tools have shown gender biases in biographical articles.
This is a problem.
When cis and trans women, non-binary people, people of color, and Indigenous communities are not represented in the writing and editing on the tenth-most-visited site in the world, information about people like us gets skewed and misrepresented. The stories get mistold. We lose out on real history. That’s why we’re here: to change it."
