Main topic: Gender Equality


Wikigender is your one-stop-resource on gender equality. The website, which was launched by the OECD Development Centre in March 2008, provides a rich base of detailed country reports, statistical data, and in-depth analyses of current and emerging gender topics. What is more, the platform allows you to be an active part of the Wikigender community, augmenting and improving available information through comments, edits or new material that you can draft or upload into this knowledge base.

Wikigender tries to gather empirical evidence and identify adequate statistics to measure gender equality. In this respect, Wikigender serves as a pilot project for the OECD Global Project on Measuring the Progress of Societies. Based on the work of the OECD Gender, Institutions and Development Data Base, Wikigender aims to highlight the importance of social institutions such as norms, traditions and cultural practices that impact on gender equality.

Open Access Policy[edit]

Wikigender is open to everyone. You can access all resources provided on the website and use its contents for your own personal needs, be it a research project on gender equality or simply your own interest in finding out more about this topic.

In order to improve the information on this site, we invite your active participation: either by providing comments and suggestions, or by contributing new articles. We particularly encourage you to browse through the wanted pages section that contains articles that still need to be written.

If you decide to contribute to this project, we kindly ask you to follow a set of Policies and Conventions. Please do not infringe copyright. Wikigender uses the GNU Free Documentation License. Everything you contribute must be compatible with that license.

Quality Control[edit]

Websites based on “wiki” technology invite the public to modify the content displayed on the pages. It is therefore important to have mechanisms in place that ensure high quality of information. Wikigender has implemented several of these mechanisms and created an effective quality control system.

Project Team[edit]

Wikigender is managed by a small team of gender experts at the OECD Development Centre, Paris.

  • Project manager: Angela Hariche
  • Senior advisor: Johannes Jütting
  • Partnerships and Editorial development: Estelle Loiseau


Wikigender is open to collaborate in the maintenance of the site with other organisations and initiatives. We look forward to welcoming new partners seeking to join this project. Our aim is to build an active community that uses and regularly updates this website. Inivited partners include other international organisations, NGOs and research institutes. We particularly look forward to welcoming partners from the developing world. Contact us at
