Only 17% of profiles on Wikipedia are of women let's bridge the gender gap in the digital space! The #WIKI4WOMEN initiative calls everyone to take few minutes (from 30 minutes) of their time to create, enrich or translate, in as many languages as possible, Wikipedia portraits of women committed in the fields of education, science, culture, social and human sciences, or communication and information. All you have to do to join .
On the Occasion of the Wiki4women initiative, UNESCO is proud to launch a Directory of Women speakers to promote women’s voices and role in the public debate. We have initially selected a list of women, but we would like this list to grow over time. UNESCO invites individuals and organizations to propose additional nominations. These will be assessed on the basis of eligibility criteria, which include proven academic and professional standing as well as public speaking experience in one of UN official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).
