Hi all,

Now, the WikiGap Challenge is live, running until 8 April!
37 participants are already signed up, creating, improving and referencing
articles about women. After one day, about 60 articles have been created in
a dozen languages, and many more improved upon.
Last year, in total 86 editors participated. Can we beat that this year?

Would be great to see many of you join!
