In this talk, we will discuss the pronounced gender gap in Wikipedia, reflecting on its causes, consequences, and solutions. We will focus on the biographies of women astronomers, and we will make a comparison between the English and Spanish Wikipedia. The talk will be given by Mentxu Ramilo Araujo, a member of Wikimujeres and Wikimedia España. She came to Wikipedia to contribute with her knowledge in the field of sports. She soon realized that the phrase ‘the free encyclopedia that EVERYONE can edit’ was not quite true. She works for a diverse and egalitarian Wikipedia in which women are not part of a minority.
