Welcome to Wikipedia!

Wikipedia is the world’s largest online and user-generated encyclopaedia. Knowledge is power, and Wikipedia has the potential to colour our view of the world. But there is great imbalance between men and women on the website, like in society at large.

Ninety per cent of those who add content to Wikipedia are men. There are four times as many articles about men as there are about women. The figures vary regionally, but no matter how you look at it, the picture is clear: the information about women is less extensive than that about men. Regardless of which language version of Wikipedia you read. We want to change this.

WikiGap is an event during which people around the world gather to add more content to Wikipedia about women figures, experts and role models in various fields. Similar events have already been arranged in almost 60 countries worldwide to improve women’s representation on the internet.

Together, we want to bring about a more gender-equal internet – and a more gender-equal world.
