Did you know less than 13% of the contributors to the world's biggest educational resource are women? The Women4Wikipedia campaign was launched when a Canberra mother got wind of this and decided to do something about it. Rosie (with son Brenton Fletcher) recently launched Collective Action a database providing a quick way for grassroots campaigns to get off the ground. It seemed like the perfect place to kick off her own her own campaign (plus she'd had a glass of wine!). Women4Wikipedia was born!

Because this campaign is growing and changing daily as more people become involved things here may change. Please keep up with developments via the news feed or visit the Women4Wikipedia Blog, RSS Feed or homepage often. You can contact Rosie at collective_action AT hotmail DOT com or on Twitter @CollectiveAct
