OpenSym 2015 – Wikipedia in the World of Global Gender Inequality Indices

In a previous post I outlined how the process of correlating the gender bias from Wikipedia with other gender inequality indices. Tomorrow I will present a poster on the same topic at OpenSym 2015. I’ll be explicating how Wikipedia’s biographical bias is closer to the gender bias in highly-qualified jobs, than longevity. It’s part of what I’ve been discovering during my Grant with the Wikimedia Foundation. You can read more in the preprint and poster.
