Quick Hit: Wikipedia Feminism Project

Perhaps in an attempt to address the issue that Maya wrote about earlier this year, the lack of women editors contributing to Wikipedia, there is a Wikipedia Feminism Project: Wikiproject Feminism.

It looks like an incredible resource both for information about feminism, but also for feminist users of Wikipedia.

    Oh, Wikipedia. Sigh. Outdated, hard to use software. Its not the hardest thing in the world, but its dated, and off-putting to new users. The trick is just to take the time to sit down and figure out how it all works. That’s hard motivation for a lot of people. Its not an easy way in.

      I’m not sure what the alternative is, though, except to make it harder for regular contributors (by “upgrading” the interface so frequently they have to relearn the system on a regular basis) and easier for the anonymous edit-and-run types who like to insert POO and PENIS and YOUR MOM into articles at random.
