Volunteer for the WikiWomen's Collaborative WWC arrow up.png

The WikiWomen's Collaborative is a volunteer-run project and we need your help to inspire, engage and support more women to be involved in the Wikimedia movement.

Be a blogger

Are you passionate about sharing your knowledge of Wikipedia with the world, or do you know women who are? Share your experience, their experiences, your success stories, or stories from the movement with our blog.
Get involved, share on the blog.

Be a blog coordinator

Blog coordinators recruit bloggers to write for the WikiWomen's blog, help prep their posts for publication, and make sure that we're publishing interesting new stories each week. Coordinators have their pulse on what's happening in the movement, and seek bloggers from around the world to engage and inspire us!
Get involved, help organize the blog.

Be a Facebook admin

Help make our Facebook page the ultimate social space for WikiWomen around the world. Facebook admins create content, share images, and promote the Facebook page to get more women involved in the conversation!
Get involved, with Facebook.

Be a translator

Without translators, the Collaborative cannot be a truly international space. Volunteer to translate blogs, Tweets and Facebook posts in any language, and help support women who speak and edit in over 240 languages.
Get involved, share your language.

About the Collaborative and why we're here WWC arrow up.png
For the 2012 conference, see WikiWomenCamp.

The WikiWomen's Collaborative is a community project created by women around the world who edit Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects and want to encourage others to do the same. Most of Wikipedia's contributors are male - at last count, the Wikimedia Foundation found that only 9% of Wikipedians are women. This gender gap doesn't just affect the community of editors and volunteers, it also impacts the kinds of content that this community makes available in over 240 languages. Inspired by the early women's movement, we hope that by creating dedicated places online to share our projects and support one another, we can engage more women to contribute to Wikipedia.
