    After not solving knife crime, Mayor of London pivots to fighting gender inequality

    Mayor of London
    @MayorofLondon





    The vast majority of Wikipedia editors are men - and just 17% of its biographies are of women. We’re calling on Londoners to help us redress this gender imbalance and ensure women’s stories are fully represented online http://bit.ly/2JwShsT



    It's the fifth most visited website in the world, and the first port of call for those of us in search of information about a famous person or historical event. But did you know that only 17 per cent of Wikipedia's biographies are about women? It’s a woefully inaccurate reflection of women’s achievements - and it has to change.
    That's why, during this year’s London Tech Week, which starts today, I have set up an ‘Edit-a-thon’ at Bloomberg’s office in the capital to try and help redress the balance.
    Schoolgirls from across the city will be joining forces with Wikipedia’s experts and women in the tech industry to create a surge in new pages about women, and to add more detail to existing ones.

    So, the mayor wants more women working for free? That will make it equal?

    He should focus on more important things, like the city’s murder and crime rate

    This is rich. A practitioner of the most misogynistic creed on the planet turns to gender inequality.

    Which is more important? Gender equality or sharia law?

    Maybe the British are too stupid these days to see the hypocrisy, but it is apparent on this side of the pond.

    Why is he disrespecting women's choices to eschew W'pedia?
    Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving. - David Burge, Iowahawkblog

    Think of the Press as Democratic Operatives with Bylines and it All Makes Sense - Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit blog

    Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn't know because they might reflect badly on Democrats. - Jim Treacher

    There's no end to the insanity sweeping the globe. Too bad the Eurotrash are again demonstrating just how stupid they really are.

    He's a muzzie. London is getting the mayor they deserve.

    i posted earlier about the hazards of using a blog generated info site such as wikipedia.


    it seems another "leader" is unaware of how it operates...


    "females have 100% of all babies born"

    "lets work together to rectify this blatant sexism"...
    "The nose, knows"


    "We Must Secure the Existence of our People and a Future for White Children".
