«Wikimedia RU» and Embassy of Sweden in the Russian Federation announce the start of the Russia segment of WikiGap 2018 International Contest.

On 7th of March 2018 at 13:00 Embassy of Sweden invites all interested to come and take part in seminar on creation of articles for Russian-language Wikipedia under the guidance of Wikipedia administrator Ms.Sofya Bagdasarova.

From 8th of March through 8th of April all interested are invited to take part in WikiGap 2018 Russia contest on writing articles about women in the Russian-language Wikipedia.

It's well known that 90 % of Wikipedia editors are men. On top of that, Wikipedia articles about men are four times more numerous than those about women. We want to change that.

WikiGap is a global initiative. People all over the world will come together to add more information into Wikipedia about women who made significant contribution into various areas. Wikimedia movement activists and Embassies of Sweden will simultaneously hold 8th of March dedicated joint events in more than 40 countries, from Sweden to Tanzania, Egypt and Columbia.

WikiGap 2018 is a project co-organized by Swedish Wikimedia chapter (Wikimedia Sverige) and the Foreign Ministry of Sweden.
