Make it She
IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE ONLY 1 IN 3 PERSON IS A WOMAN. THAT WORLD IS CALLED THE INTERNET As we skim through news articles, peruse Wikipedia, or read academic journals, we are exposed to gender-biased content. For instance, only 18% of English biographies on Wikipedia are about women, despite thousands of women meeting Wikipedia’s notability standards. Over the long-term, this gender gap in online representation shapes our beliefs of what women can accomplish: the more male sources we read about in the news, the more male academics we see quoted in articles, the more likely we are to associate their achievements with their gender. Good news: you now have the power to "Make it She". With just one click, Make it She shows you the ratio of male to female words on any webpage, and enables you to Tweet those findings to raise awareness in your network.
