From 10-24 November, the Ukrainian chapter of Wikipedia will host the ‘She did it’ marathon supported by the EU and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
The campaign under the ‘WE ACT: Women Empowerment Action’ programme aims to highlight success stories of prominent women fighting combat gender stereotypes and revealing the benefits of gender equality.
THE EU and UNFPA will award the most significant contributions to articles about Ukrainian women athletes and diplomats.
“Information about prominent women of Ukraine is not only about fairness, but also about inspiration and an example for future generations of female researchers, athletes, diplomats, leaders in any sphere of life,” said Tetiana Shulha, Sector Manager on Culture and Gender Focal Point at the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
Currently, only 17 percent of biographical articles in the Ukrainian Wikipedia are devoted to women.
