Proposed participation[edit]

I am an active Wikipedian with a considerable contribution on Gender Gap Issue. I have had a submission accepted at Adacamp, where I will be speaking about the gender gap issue that exist on Wikipedia specially at the Albanian Wikipedia. I have done activities and i am planing to do more in collaboration with others Wikimedias(like Serbian one) to increase the participation of girls on editing Wikipedia.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

As a result of my talk/discussion , hopefully everyone in the audience will understand the importance of having more females on Wikipedia, and sharing their own experience/thoughts about this. So we together to find more alternatives how to reduce the gap.
