Women and Wikimedia Survey 2011 results

Sarah Stierch has just published the results of the Women and Wikimedia Survey 2011. From the report:

In January of 2011 the New York Times reported that Wikipedia was suffering from a gender gap, based on a Wikimedia Foundation survey from 2010, which stated that female contributors made up less than 13% of editors.[1] The news only got worse, as the Wikimedia Foundation released their 2011 Editor’s Survey, which reported that 9% of editors were female on Wikipedia, less than the already low percentage.

329 women responded to the 22 question survey. The results are well worth reading, and will provide a reference for future discussions about how women experience participation in Wikipedia and related projects.
