Did you know for every one Wikipedia page about a woman, there are four about men?

We want to thank and Wikipedia for their campaign to encourage #flerekvinderpåwiki.

Because wikipedia is an open editing platform, we have the power to be the change we want to see. There is no excuse for 83 % of all biographies on Wikipedia to be about men.

Help contribute to our Global Goals World Cup Wikipedia page. Have you played in a GGWCup tournament, know someone who has, are you on our Dream Team? We would love to have you and more than 3,000 women who have played in our tournament in the GGWCup article on Wikipedia.
