The gender composition of Wikipeida editors is skewed towards male editors (See WP:Gender bias and editing on Wikipedia). Many editors assume that other editors are male and refer to them with male pronouns. Many women it off putting when people assume that they are male.
To counter this bias and make women feel welcome at Wikipedia , I make a point of referring to other editors with female pronouns unless (1) their user name indicates that they are male or (2) they ask me to do otherwise.
