A Wikipedia Editor is an online content editor for a Wikipedia page.




    • QUOTE: In 2008, a survey found that less than 13% of Wikipedia contributors worldwide were women. The free online encyclopedia that “anyone can edit” was outed as being mostly run by men. A follow up survey in 2011 found similar results: globally, 9% of contributors were women; in the U.S., it was 15%. Meanwhile, there appeared to be no significant gender difference in readership rates.

      These findings sparked profuse debate over what was discouraging women from contributing — yet there hasn’t been much of a change since then.
