Result: 238 new atticles from 71 partcipants - WikiGap 2021 went beyond our expectations
This year's WikiGap was organized online and we run 5 edit-a-thons
Our campaign to write more articles on women and women's topics on Wikipedia, and our effort to bring to online space more women Wikipedians started on March 8th and ended on April 8th, 2021. It consisted of 5 online events, open to community call with hashtag: #WikiGap2021, and active campaigns on the association's social networks and in some media (see one our videos below).
A total of 176 new articles on the topic of women were created, even more articles matters related to female topics in general, and the final number outreached our expectations: 238 WikiGap articles altogether, written by 74 editors.
Thanks to those 5 online edit-a-thons, which took place within one month, we managed to teach the basics of Wikipedia to 56 participants. We hope some of them will continue their work as editors.
