Gendergap -- Addressing gender equity and exploring ways to increase the participation of women within Wikimedia projects.


About Gendergap

Wikimedia Foundation surveys show that the participation of women in Wikipedia and related projects are between 9 and 13 percent. This mailing list is provided by the Wikimedia Foundation as a communication tool to collectively address the realities of the gender gap within our projects. We are focused on discussing solutions and exploring opportunities that may serve as a starting point to improve gender equity, increase the participation of women and trans women, and reduce the impact of the gender gap within Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and the "free knowledge movement". We want to encourage you to engage with others in this effort. Your thoughts and opinions in this regard matter to us and to the community.
