Gender by language

This plot shows the top 40 Wikipedia Languages (by number of gendered biographies), and compares their number of gendered biographies to female percentage of those biographies. This cutoff is arbitrary for the sake of clearly visualizing the distribution across major Wikipedia languages. For a comprehensive coverage, one can fetch the complete data from the data repository.

The changes show the number of biographies added and the female percentage change between the two latest snapshots.

As of October 2014 about 99% of biographies were attached to at least one Wikipedia site, so this data is mostly complete.
