Abstract[edit source]

How I became a Wikiwoman and why community is so important

Description[edit source]

This is a true story about me, and how I started editing in Wikipedia. Before I started editing, I knew nothing about Wikipedia.
For someone like me who grew up in a kibbutz, community was always an important part of my life. We have a strong community of editors here in Israel that meet in person, and that is part of the reason that I am the Wikiwoman that I am today!

By creating an existing, supporting community for women we strive to reduce the gender gap and make the Hebrew Wikipedia a warm place for women writing.
