The Swedish Embassy in Japan hosted an event Sunday to increase the number of articles on women in the online collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia, with the aim of narrowing the gender gap on the internet.

According to the embassy, only 17 percent of the individuals given Wikipedia entries were women across all its sites in some 300 languages. The ratio was 22 percent for the Japanese version.
