Concerning women updating Wikipedia to me it's less a "women are less willing to assert their opinions in public." then a matter of time and priorities.
From the article
“Everyone brings their crumb of information to the table,” she said. “If they [the women] are not at the table, we don’t benefit from their crumb.”
When women prepare the crumbs in the real-life kitchen, hubbies have the time to update some articles. After the crumbs are cleared from the table and the dishes washed (while hubby is still updating articles) there may be many other priorities/interests to fill the remaining spare time than updating some articles.
On the other hand ‘do I know enough, am I bragging?’ is something that some men
would be wise to think first before they say/write something ;o)
