Category nodes for Australian women’s sport on English Wikipedia
With 32 Wikipedia categories and 543 articles examined to identify article/category nodes for Australian women’s sport, it is apparent that the category structure on Wikipedia does not support a female centric navigation tree.
There are 18 total major node areas. Some of these are in complete isolation of other categories including Sportswomen from Western Australia, Women’s cricket in Australia, and WNBL seasons. Some of this is a result of sample size, but more of it is because many of the articles only appear in one Australian female specific category.
While general women’s sports articles, teams and athletes are all included, there is little intersection between them. These articles, in the category structure, are isolated from each other.
Below are the eighteen category nodes for the 32 categories in the sample. The highlighted node is netball in Australia.
