Women journalists are underrepresented on Wikipedia, one of the most-visited English language websites in the world. This leads to issues related to safety, credibility, and recognition and income. Women Do News is dedicated to elevating the voices and profiles of women journalists online.  We are made up of a working board, all volunteer, and one project manager who helps keep us moving forward, and most importantly all the people who sign up to participate!

The Women Do News project grew out of a 2019 cohort of journalists participating in Take The Lead, a leadership training program co-founded by Gloria Feldt. It has since evolved to partner with other allies at universities and journalism groups to identify worthy women journalists for biographies, train editors, and add Wikipedia entries to even the playing field on this important platform. We are now part of a nonprofit, Bay City News Foundation, to support this work. Help us if you can.
