Hi Samantha and thanks for the useful work you are doing to publicize the gender gap on Wikipedia. I see that according to this article in the Minnesota Daily, you gave the percentage of women's biographies on Wikipedia as just 16%. While the percentage is indeed far too low, it has now risen to over 17%. This difference is extremely important to those of us working on WikiProject Women in Red where we are doing all we can to increase the coverage of women and their works. You can access the correct data on WHGI which monitors the percentage of women's biographies which are coded human and female on Wikidata. As of 16 October 2017, 255,667 or 17.12% of our 1,492,988 biographies in the English Wikipedia were on women. Katherine Maher made the same mistake in an article recently published in Forbes. As a specialist in communications, perhaps you could make sure our efforts are taken into account in future presentations by WMF. I am copying this to Megalibrarygirl, Rosiestep and Victuallers who are active on Women in Red.--Ipigott (talk) 08:27, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
