[Wikimedia-l] Stats re new users per gender per year in Hebrew Wikipedia

Shani Evenstein
Hello all,

This is something that made me happy this weekend and am happy to share --
check out these stats from Hebrew Wikipedia regarding new users, per
gender, per year, that Asaf generated via a WD query.

You might notice a jump in numbers of female users in 2011, and then again
in 2013 and 2015. I don't presume to be able to explain everything in the
table below, but I'd like to think this is because of Wikimedia Israel's
outreach efforts, which I'm proud to be part of since 2011.
Here are some example milestones that I know of know of, which might
explain these stats. Note they are a small part of numerous, varied and
diverse outreach projects that WM-IL has been running for years now in
GLAM, EDU, WikiWomen, WLM etc.  --
* 2011 is when we started GLAMing and doing Education work more seriously.
* 2013 is when my WikiMed academic course started.
* 2015 is when my second Wiki academic course opened, and also when
WikiWomen started to work in an organized manner in Israel.

While we still have much work to do in shrinking the gender gap and being
really inclusive, it's nice to be reminded that our work *does* matter and
has actual impact on the voices that get to be heard in our community. So
to all those running workshops, GLAM / EDU projects, contests etc -- keep
up the good work, because your work matters. These numbers are merely one
way of demonstrating that.

A lovely weekend, everyone!

Asaf Bartov
(A Quarry query, not Wikidata query, in this case.)

And the table doesn't come through on the mailing list, so here's a
screenshot:

Cheers,
