More details about the event:
The Emory Libraries Wikipedia Group will host the 8th annual Women of Wikipedia Editathon on Wednesday, March 29. We invite all Emory University students, faculty, and staff to learn how to edit Wikipedia with us in a live workshop and community gathering!
Wikipedia is the largest encyclopedia in the world, and anyone can edit it – yet less than 10 percent of Wikipedia editors are women, and only 19 percent of biographies are about women. Prominent women in their fields are much less documented on Wikipedia than men. The goal of this event and the global movement is to amplify the voices of cis and transgender women and non-binary individuals by giving them due coverage on Wikipedia. As this is an intersectional feminist event, we aim to address this representation across racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend and make a positive difference in how we talk and write about women on the Internet. No experience is required – we’ll teach you all you need to know to participate.
