Women and Wikipedia

I hate generalisations - women only play Sims, they are finicky, they love Ogres ... wait, what?

Anyway, I also hate to admit it, but a large percentage of women follow the socially determined gender norms and thus, contribute to dumb ass results ... like this one.

Quote from Mashable:

According to the The Wall Street Journal, the survey took place in November of last year, with results being presented last week at a conference in Buenos Aires. A total of 53,888 respondents indicated that they were Wikipedia contributors, but only 6,814 of them were women.
