Yale wants more women to contribute to Wikipedia.
According to Yale, only 17% of the biographies on the user-generated information site are of women. An estimated 90% of editors on Wikipedia are male. The school held a one-day 'edit-athon' Tuesday, the event was to encourage women to edit and create profiles of Yale alumni women. People even participated remotely. Wikipedia reportedly supports the effort to make the site more inclusive.
