Episode 13: Overcoming Harassment and the Transgender Gap
What’s in this episode?
In this podcast episode we interview two long-time non-binary Wikipedia editors, Pax and Tamsin. They discuss their efforts to improve the representation of marginalized groups and reduce harassment on Wikipedia, reinforcing the importance of the movement strategy’s focus on safety and inclusion. The guests talk about their fight against vandalism and provide a critical perspective on the encyclopedia’s neutral point of view policy. The episode sheds light on the challenges and the progress that we face as a Movement as we try to create a Wikipedia that is safer and that better represents trans and non-binary people and content.
