The Wikipedia gender gap

About 8 out of 10 contributors to Wikipedia are men. To present knowledge in a precise and neutral way is hard, but impossible when those that share and discuss that knowledge don’t represent a diversity of voices and backgrounds. Which knowledge is shared, and how is it presented, when a large majority of those that edit it are men?

Wikimedia Norge wants to contribute to closing this gender gap. We work to increase the diversity among contributors on the Wikimedia-projects and the diversity of the content they generate.

Does this sound interesting, but you don’t know how and where to start? Then we would like to get in touch with you! We would also like to get in touch if you work for an institution that might want to take part in Women in Red or Art+Feminism project activities.
