Gender bias on Wikipedia

Gender gap problem in Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects

Gender bias on Wikipedia means that Wikipedia editors are mostly men. Fewer biographies on Wikipedia are about women. There are fewer articles for or about things that are important to women. Those articles are not as good.[3][4]

The Wikipedia Monument in Słubice, Poland has both male and female editors.[1][2] The initial model for the sculpture featured only men.
