BBC 100 Women 2016: Season ends with record breaking Wikipedia edit

It is one of the world's most popular websites - a source of information on many things. But there is one area where Wikipedia - the online encyclopaedia - is severely lacking. That is entries about, and by, women.

It's something the organisation is trying to tackle and today they've teamed up with the BBC's 100 Women season to do something about it. Nuala McGovern has spent the day at a very special event.

What is 100 women?

BBC 100 Women names 100 influential and inspirational women around the world every year. We create documentaries, features and interviews about their lives, giving more space for stories that put women at the centre.
