In this Chapter, Caddie introduces you to Wikipedia and the 10 Chapters in this tutorial. - Did you know Wikipedia is one of the top ten most visited websites in the world and the source for much of the information we get from Google, Siri or Alexa? But with less than 19.6% of biographies on Wikipedia being about women and only 10% of editors identifying as women, the information we get suffers from serious gender bias. To improve the visibility of women and other under-represented groups, we have created a series of tutorial videos on how to edit Wikipedia. Structured in 10 Chapters, you will learn everything from creating an account to editing an existing page to creating a new page and looking after it. To find out more go to 🤍franklinwomen.com.au/wikipedia This video resource was made by Franklin Women and The Leadership Film in partnership and consultation with Wikimedia Australia, supported by AbbVie and Good Pitch Australia, Shark Island Institute, Documentary Australia, and The Leadership film's Good Pitch donors.
Wikipedia is the first source that many use to find out more about someone, but there's a huge problem - many notable women in science are simply not there. In fact, only about 19% of Wikipedia biographies are of women. Dr Jess Wade is on a mission to change this. In her day job, she's an Imperial College Research Fellow investigating new materials for electronic devices that will make them more efficient and sustainable. She's also a champion for diversity in science. In the last four years, she's written 1,800 wikipedia biographies for women and people from other underrepresented groups to tell the stories of their contributions to science. These include extraordinary women in science such as Dr Gladys West, a mathematician who was instrumental to the creation of GPS, and Dr Hannah Ritchie, Head of Research at Our World in Data.

There are several reasons why women are underrepresented in Wikipedia entries. One reason is that the volunteer community that edits the free encyclopedia is overwhelmingly male.

On 25 March, 2021, the Wikimedia Foundation and George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs hosted a virtual event about gender disparities in the media and information landscape and the collective action needed to generate solutions. Event speakers from academia, journalism, activism, and the nonprofit sector discussed shortcomings in the information landscape (the universe of resources we turn to for knowledge) to recognize women, and how organizations, industries, and individuals can work together for change. The event is part of Project Rewrite, a gender equity initiative from the Wikimedia Foundation, which calls attention to the persistent gender gaps on Wikipedia — the missing representation of cis and transgender women — and calls on everyone to help close them. Everyone has a role to play in addressing these challenges. Speakers: - Janeen Uzzell, Chief Operating Officer, the Wikimedia Foundation (🤍janeenuzzell) - Dr. Rebekah Tromble, Director of the Institute for Data, Democracy, and Politics, George Washington University (🤍RebekahKTromble) - Emily Ramshaw, co-founder and CEO, The 19th (🤍eramshaw) - Kira Wisniewski, Executive Director, Art+Feminism (🤍kiraface) - Anusha Alikhan (facilitator), Senior Director of Communications, the Wikimedia Foundation (🤍AnushaA100) Learn more about Project Rewrite here: 🤍

According to one estimate, only 19% of the English-language biographies on Wikipedia are about women. So British physicist Jess Wade got to writing!
This is a video submission for the 2019 LILAC Information Literacy Awards for the work of the Wikimedia Residency at the University of Edinburgh. Wikipedia is about making connections, wiki-linking from one subject to another, disappearing down the rabbit hole of knowledge. And that’s what the residency at the University of Edinburgh has been about, delivering workshops and creating resources which allow colleagues across the whole university to see the connections between their work and the work of the free and open Wikimedia projects. As such we have now created a network of 'Open Knowledge nodes'. We find that when we work with a colleague in one discipline this can often lead to further collaborations and other colleagues being brought in and other disciplines. The number of connections and positive quality interactions that a collaboration with Wikimedia affords makes, I think, working in this space finding areas of mutual benefit makes this the most exciting in academia right now, because it is so emergent but it has so much potential to make a really “significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to the world”.

The GLAM-Wiki Revolution is a short documentary about the GLAM programme in the United Kingdom. The GLAM programme is a series of partnerships between Wikimedia UK, a charity which supports Wikipedia and its editors in the UK, and cultural institutions, known collectively as GLAMs (an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums). Many choose to play host to a Wikimedian-in-Residence, who acts as a liaison between the institution and the Wikimedia community and works to open up the resources held by the institution through Wikipedia and its sister projects. This documentary gives an overview of the GLAM project in the UK by visiting Wikimedians-in-Residence around the country to learn more about the projects they have run and their experiences in the role.

The gender gap on Wikipedia has just narrowed thanks to volunteers who marked International Women’s Day this year with an “edit-a-thon,” creating and editing dozens of biographies for prominent women in the social and behavioral sciences. On March 8, SAGE Publishing organized the edit-a-thon in Washington, London, and online, to highlight achievements of women researchers in social and behavioral science who explore the world to gain a better understanding of human behavior. From anthropology to psychology, their studies have supported efforts to improve individual mental health and can influence development of public health policies for communities and nations.
