WikiGap is an event during which people around the world gather to add more content to Wikipedia about women figures, experts and role models in various fields. On 8 March 2018– International Women’s Day – the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Swedish embassies hosted simultaneous events in more than 40 countries. Ninety per cent of those who add content to Wikipedia are men. There are four times more articles about men than women.

In Belgrade #WikiGap was be organized by the Embassy of Sweden in cooperation with Wikimedia Serbia. The edit-a-thon included around 15 participants and resulted in approximately 30 articles. However, these numbers are not the communication essence of the project, but rather the communication work (PR) itself about WikiGap and the reasons for organizing it throughout the world.
