The #WikiHerStory initiative aims to raise awareness of Wikipedia’s gender gap and offer opportunities for our audiences to get involved with existing community projects that are helping to address it.

Throughout the month, the campaign will highlight community edit-a-thons and events, stories about people and projects that address greater gender equity and representation on the Wikimedia projects, on the campaign landing page (linked below) and on social media.

If you are working on an event or initiative that you’d like to be highlighted on the landing page or on social media, comment below. The campaign is all about elevating what different communities are doing!

Feel free to share anything about this campaign on your own social channels (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) using #WikiHerStory this week and through March 31st. As part of the initiative, the Communications team is also launching Wikimedia Foundation’s new Instagram channel @wikimediafoundation.
