International Women’s Day

Joint initiative by Sweden and the UN in Jordan to shine a brighter light on the achievements of prominent Jordanian and Arab women on Wikipedia.

The Swedish Embassy in Amman and the UN in Jordan, along with a network of local Jordanian partners, are cooperating with Wikimedia Levant to highlight women profiles, experts and role models from Jordan and the Arab world on International Women’s Day. With the initiative, we want to increase the number of women represented on Wikipedia, make the internet more gender-equal  and draw attention to the important achievements of great Jordanian and Arab women.
