Journalists — if you’re going to come after @Wikipedia for it’s coverage of women, check your own coverage first. We’re a mirror of the world’s biases, not the source of them.
We can’t write articles about what you don’t cover. https://t.co/FR3zpGDLYA

Is this a subject of debate within Wikipedia? How (or whether) to react to / compensate for known biases in the media and other sources? Or is there consensus to just live with it and hope the sources improve?
It's a can of worms obviously.
Curators, academics, grantmakers, prize-awarding committees, and all other gatekeepers — you too are responsible. When you do not recognize, write about, publish, or otherwise elevate women, queer folks, people of color, and others, you erase them and their contributions.
