Gender equity report 2018
Advancing Gender Equity
Advancing gender equity means that we seek fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for all genders. Because some genders have been historically underserved and underrepresented, equity requires that we identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented their full participation in society.
In 2017, 65 Wikimedians who lead gender equity projects sat down for interviews with Rosiestep (Co-founder of Women in Red). These conversations explored the unique challenges and successes of their work to advance gender equity on Wikimedia projects. This report provides a succinct overview of what we learned from them.
