Wikipedia – Somali women profiles


“Somali women making a difference” – which women would you nominate to be featured on the world’s biggest online encyclopedia, Wikipedia?

Wikipedia content has the potential to colour our view of the world. But there is great imbalance on Wikipedia, like in society at large: 90 per cent of those who add content are men. There are more than four times as many articles about men as there are about women.  Somali women are hardly represented at all.

Tell us the name/s of the woman or women you think should be profiled. She may be from any walk of life – but she must be someone who has had an impact on the community and society around her.
