You can still help to improve the coverage of women’s contributions to science in the comfort of your own home! Only 18% of Wikipedia’ English language biographies are about women and we can improve the gender gap by creating and editing articles about women in science. Instead of creating new articles, follow the instructions to edit and add to existing Wikipedia articles about women in science.
