Wikipedia hosts 1.7 million biographies. Not even 20% of those are about women. If Wikipedia wants to become the sum of human knowledge, this needs to change. With such a large gender gap, we are far from reaching the goal. International Women's Day is an important moment to remind ourselves of the gender gap for women and all underrepresented groups and to renew our efforts to close these gaps.
This page gathers several events that take place on or around International Women's Day (8 March) and Women's History Month in March 2021, and where the goal is to come closer to closing the gender gap.
