Did you know that most volunteer Wikipedia editors are male, and that there are fewer and less extensive articles on Wikipedia about women and issues important to women? There are thousands of female scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists who meet Wikipedia’s standards for notability but don’t yet have a page.
