Building peace in the minds of men and women

#WIKI4WOMEN World Contributory Movement

Celebration of International Women’s Day 2019




Let’s write the stories of overlooked women for more gender equality in the digital sphere


The #WIKI4WOMEN initiative calls everyone to take a few minutes of their time to create, enrich or translate, in as many languages as possible, Wikipedia profiles of women committed in the fields of education, science, culture, social and human sciences, or communication and information.

No matter where you are in the world, all you have to do to join #WIKI4WOMEN is:

  • Create an account on Wikipedia
  • Start working on women profiles.

Choose your Wikipedia page:

English | Français | Español | Русский | العربية | 中文 | Other languages


  • Pragmatic, always in a rush - I complete an article (30 minutes)
  • Meticulous Polyglot - I translate (between 30 and 60 minutes)
  • Discerning Perfectionist - I enrich (between 1 and 2 hours)
  • Persistent hard-worker - I write a portrait (between 2 and 4 hours)

#WIKI4WOMEN is an initiative led by UNESCO and Wikimedia, with the support of

UNESCO considers gender equality as a fundamental human right, a building block for social justice and an economic necessity. It is a critical factor for the achievement of all internationally agreed development goals as well as a goal in and of itself.
