Abstract & description[edit source]
A Women a Day, Gender Gap is away. From the idea of writing about one woman each day in Wikipedia, the goal was to bring the Gender Gap to a close. But as the saying goes: "Together we are stronger." So the international projects and collaborations, Wikipedia sister projects, GLAM, and Women's Institutions sharing the same ideas and goals come to support.
A Women A Day, Women in Red, Wiki Loves Women, 100 Wikidays of Wiki Loves Women, MENA Artists Month, HERstory, Wiki Gap, Art & Feminism, and in 2017 a new women collaboration was born during Wikimania 2017 at 100wikidays Meetup Session in Montreal: InterWiki Women Collaboration. Wikipedians Camelia Boban from Italy, Andrea Patricia Kleiman from Argentina, and Armine Aghayan from Armenia have decided to start an international collaboration to help to cover the gender gap in Wikipedia and sister projects to create a culture about women in all wiki languages and Wiki sister projects. With the help of all these Projects, the number of Women Biographies is increasing in Armenian Wikipedia daily.

Qn. How does your session relate to the event themes: Diversity, Collaboration Future?
Closing Gender Gap projects bring together Communities to work meanwhile on the same goal and topic. It brings into reality a collaboration with GLAM, Women's Institutions, Mass Media, as well as international collaborations between Wikimedia Chapters. The target is to cover the Gender gap in Wikipedia projects with different headlines and bring into wiki reality (in the shape of wiki articles) women from all over the world, of different social and ethnic backgrounds, different genders, and sexual orientations.
