The contest is organized by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs(ref) and Wikimedia Sverige, with support from Swedish embassies, and Wikimedia Sudan across the world. Wikipedia is missing articles about Sudanese Women and and through this contest we hope to improve articles around women in General and Sudanese Women. Improving Wikipedia's articles on women is important to fill the Gap in information about the people that have helped form our world.
