2021 Women of Wikipedia Edit-a-thon (Virtual), Wednesday, April 21, 3-5 pm

Wikipedia Editing Event

Jenn Sutcliffe of TLT, presents at 2020 Women of Wikipedia Editathon

Edit Wikipedia to make sure women are represented.

This is the sixth year that the Emory University Libraries and Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) will host a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to improve the coverage of women in Wikipedia by training new Wikipedia editors. This year’s edit-a-thon will be hosted virtually, via Zoom.

Only 18.8% of English Wikipedia biographies profile women, according to the Women in Red WikiProject. The Women of Wikipedia Edit-a-thon strives to write more articles about notable women of all races, nationalities, and ethnicities (including transgender and nonbinary individuals).

To sign up, please RSVP here and then join the editing dashboard so that your edits can be counted during the event. Be sure to create a Wikipedia account if you don’t already have one.

Date: Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Time: 3-5 p.m. EST

Host/Location: Virtual via Zoom – RSVP to receive Zoom link

This event is made possible with support from Art+Feminism, a global campaign that supports improving articles about women and aims to encourage more women to become Wikipedia editors.
