Dr. Pamela E. Harris on Wikipedia!

Check out Dr. Harris's new wikipedia page!

Dr. Harris's wikipedia article is within the scope of WikiProject Women scientists, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Women in science on Wikipedia. This article was created or improved as part of the Women in Red (WiR) project: ``a group of editors of all genders living around the world focused on improving content systemic bias in the wiki movement. We recognized a need for this work as, in October 2014, only 15.53% of English Wikipedia's biographies were about women. Founded in July 2015, WiR strives to increase the percentage, which has reached 18.19% as of 6 January 2020. But that means, according to WHGI, only 305,550 of our 1,679,455 biographies are about women. Not impressed? "Content gender gap" is a form of systemic bias, and WiR addresses it in a positive way through shared values.''
