Wikipedia gendergap смотреть последние обновления за сегодня на .
🤍 Since the UNU-MERIT/WMF survey in 2008 that quantified Wikipedia's gender gap for the first time, discussions surrounding this problem has been one of the leading topics on Wikipedia research. Fast forward ten years, we know more about the gender problem, its magnitude, manifestations and repercussions. In this presentation, we intend to provide a comprehensive overview of the researches on gender gap in Wikipedia. We aim to answer the following questions: 1. What proportion of Wikipedia editors are women? 2. Why women do not edit Wikipedia? 3. Do women and men editors have different behavioural or editing patterns? 4. Are women portrayed differently from men on Wikipedia articles? 5. What is the public perception/reception of the gender gap on Wikipedia? We shall try to find answers to these questions based on the findings from existing research. We will talk about both the participation gap and content gap, with evidence from past research to support our conclusions. We will go into the details of content gap, explaining about the coverage, structural, lexical and visibility bias in Wikipedia's articles.
Über Frauen reden – nein, Artikel über Frauen in Wikipedia. Kann man die These „es gibt zu wenige Artikel über Frauen in Wikipedia“ eigentlich etwas differenzierter betrachten?

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. “Women are critical to social and behavioral science research and instruction, from their pioneering work of new methodologies to the application of their work outside of academia on policy and practice. In fact, today, women fill more than 61% of social science-related occupations,” says Charisse Kiino, vice president for product and market development with the US college division of SAGE Publishing. “For us, it made sense to make a start by working on biographies of women in the social and behavioral sciences for a couple of reasons. At Sage, 65% of our employees are women and do great work every day. So we want a resource like Wikipedia to reflect the amazing work that women are doing. And for my division, US college, one of our goals to make sure that all students from all backgrounds and abilities can see themselves in the pages of our textbook content. Shouldn’t a resource like Wikipedia also reflect women’s crucial role in social and behavioral science research? I want women in college to see that work and influence reflected in a site like Wikipedia,” Kiino tells CCC’s Chris Kenneally. The Wikipedia gender gap arises not only from the predominance of male contributors but also from the challenge presented by Wikipedia’s principle of notability – a Wikipedia biography must refer to previously published materials. Yet if women are underrepresented as Wikipedians and elsewhere, this results a catch-22 bind, “It’s what perpetuates the gender gap,” says Ariel Cetrone, institutional partnerships manager for Wikimedia DC, a regional outreach affiliate for Wikipedia and other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation. “At these events, we encourage individuals to write new articles, especially when working on biographies, and cite existing sources. Now, if we can’t find those sources, we can’t write those articles. “We encourage our partners and anybody listening here – if you are in the position to write about women, if you are in the position where you can get the word out, publish profile pieces on the women, talk about their work, talk about what they’re doing in their fields. Once that information is published, we are able to cite it.” Subscribe to the #VelocityOfContent podcast: On Apple: 🤍 Spotify: 🤍 Google:🤍

Wikimedia UK is the national chapter for the global Wikimedia movement which supports Wikipedia and its sister sites. This video showcases the work of Wikimedia UK and the community of Wikimedians in the UK as they try to address gender bias and a lack of content on Wikipedia about women. Over the last few years, many articles have been written about the #GenderGap on Wikipedia, with only a small proportion of Wikipedia editors being female, and less than 1/5th of biographical articles on the English Wikipedia being about women. Wikimedia UK aims to show what we have been doing to tackle this issue, and to encourage more people to get involved in reducing inequality and bias on Wikipedia and the broader internet.

As part of the OCLC Distinguished Seminar Series, OCLC hosted Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight of Northeastern University's Women Writers Project. In the presentation, “Wikipedia’s gender gap, and what would Hari Seldon do about it?” Rosie will focused on Wikipedia’s gender gaps: the low percentage of women editors and the equally low percentage of articles about women, their works, and their issues. Rosie shared findings of the 2017 Wikimedia Gender Diversity Mapping study, where she interviewed 65 Wikimedia women leaders from around the world, and explained how a “small group of nobodys” are making a difference in improving the “multilingual, web-based, free encyclopedia based on a model of openly editable content."

The Wikipedia gendergap and what we're trying to do about it Ever since we got confirmation of our suspicions that women were massively underrepresented as Wikipedia editors, the Wikimedia community has strived to decrease the gendergap. This talk will present some of our initiatives, outline what has worked and what has not, and what we are doing right now. But it will also define some of the reasons why women haven't started editing, and why they stop.
Recent research from Isabelle Langrock and Sandra González-Bailón at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania evaluates the work of Art+Feminism and another feminist edit-a-thon, 500 Women Scientists, in closing Wikipedia’s gender gap. They look at over 11,000 Wikipedia biographies, and find that while women’s pages are usually shorter and less frequently viewed than men’s biographies in the same professional categories, pages that are edited by Users associated with the edit-a-thons are, on average, longer and viewed more. This work shows that these feminist edit-a-thons are indeed working to close information gaps related to gender, feminism, and in the case of Art+Feminism events, the arts, beginning with Wikipedia. However, Langrock and Gonzalez-Bailon have also identified structural areas where gender bias persists despite the work of these interventions. Pages edited by these feminist edit-a-thon attendees are linked to at much lower rates than other biographies on Wikipedia, keeping the information contained on these pages on the edges of Wikipedia’s knowledge network. For example, if you keep clicking links on Wikipedia pages, you are much less likely to end up on a biography of a woman artist than a male artist. Links are a vital way for connecting information across Wikipedia and this inequality can have ripple effects across the wider Internet.
For years, Wikipedia - the world's largest online encyclopaedia - has ranked among the top visited websites in the world. It is likely the first result to pop up on an internet search. And since 2001, the "Free Encyclopaedia" has become a key source for online discovery and research. But more than 80% of Wikipedia's volunteer editors are male, and the gender imbalance is reflected in its articles, say Wikipedians working to address the site's gender bias and lack of inclusivity. Over the years, numerous efforts by the Wikimedia Foundation and others have been made to encourage more articles and citations focused on highlighting the accomplishments of women. Wikipedia entries about women are less likely to be accepted and annotated by its online community of editors. A 2021 study found that 41% of Wikipedia biographies nominated for deletion were about women. That figure seems staggering given that only 19% of published Wikipedia biographies are about women, according to the Wikiproject Women in Red. In this episode of The Stream, we’ll look at some of the editing initiatives that are working to fight gender bias, one Wikipedia entry at a time.

Wikipedia ist die Informationsplattform unserer Zeit. Sie ist meistens die erste Anlaufstelle, wenn man sich über ein Thema informieren will. Doch wer schreibt diese Artikel eigentlich? Zu 90% sind es Männer. Inwieweit ist unser Verständnis von Bildung, Wissen und Forschung männlich geprägt? Gibt es so etwas überhaupt? Ist Wissen nicht gleich Wissen? Was hat es mit der Gender Gap auf Wikipedia auf sich? Über diese Fragen sprechen wir mit Lilli Iliev von Wikimedia Deutschland. #ALEXBerlin Abonniert uns und werdet Teil der ALEX Familie!

Computer science researchers in the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering are leading a team that has confirmed a substantial gender gap among editors of Wikipedia and a corresponding gender-oriented disparity in the content. Their research showed that only 16 percent of new editors joining Wikipedia during 2009 identified themselves as female, and those females made only 9 percent of the edits by the editors who joined in 2009.

Although women are just as likely as men to read Wikipedia, they only represent an estimated 16% of global Wikipedia editors and 23% of U.S. adult Wikipedia editors. In this talk, Eszter Hargittai Delaney Family Professor in the Communication Studies Department and Faculty Associate of the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University, and Aaron Shaw Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University discuss findings from their recent study of both Wikipedia contributors and non-contributors showing that the gender gap in editing is exacerbated by a similarly important Internet skills gap. They suggest efforts ways of overcoming the gender gap in Wikipedia contributions by addressing the Web-use skills gap, and paths for future research. More info on this here: 🤍

Pretentious feminist is concerned about porting a gender gap into VR, whatever the fuck that means. Edit: 5 years later. Alright this lady obviously meant to bring up that there are a disproportionate amount of men than women working for Oculus and needed to phrase it in the form of a question to get attention. I'm not going to make a bad faith argument on what she meant. So you know what, good on her for asking, poor on her for execution.
