Every year as part of Women, Action and the Media’s WAM! It Yourself Week, I provide a free 1-hour introduction to editing Wikipedia as part of the effort to close the gender gap. Over 80% of Wikipedia’s editors are men, and we’re not capturing the full breadth of our collective experiences there by having only one gender contribute most of the content. (WAM)
