Sydney helps redress Wikipedia gender bias

Women are the focus of only about 15 per cent of Wikipedia profile entries and comprise only about 10 to 15 per cent contributors. Various global initiatives have been launched to redress the imbalance, and the University of Sydney joined in this month with a “Women in Wikipedia: 2018 Edit-a-thon”, where about 50 students, staff members and volunteers created and updated entries on women — particularly Australian women writers, scientists and scholars.

  1. What a terrific, simple and effective idea. I must get writing some more entries as well. Perhaps WCEI, Chief Executive Women, Ruby Connection etc should do the same for business women?

What do you think?
