WikiChix is a community that aims to provide a safe environment where women can discuss issues of gender bias in wikis, to promote wikis to potential female editors, and for general discussion of wikis in a friendly female-only environment.
The project was created by Angela Beesley in November 2006 following discussions on systemic gender bias in Wikipedia which made it clear that a number of women were not comfortable contributing to the conversation there.
WikiChix was named after, and inspired by, LinuxChix, the women-oriented community for Linux users.
The project consists of a wiki and mailing list.
This project is now defunct.
