The idea is not new and we intended to implement this format since a long time, but now we put our money where our mouths are: In 2017, 6 Wikipedia evenings – for women only – will take place at the Impact Hub in Zurich. We’re getting together to write articles about women and women’s issues and to work through the role of women in overall contexts where they are, as of today, not existing in Wikipedia. Our call to action: Women, let’s get together and edit Wikipedia in order to close the gender gap with regards to authorship and content.
Save the dates: 7.2, 29.3, 11.5, 19.9, 18.10 & 16.11
More information will be available on Wikipedia and on this blog. And you can sign up to my list in order to receive news with regards to women edit events in the future:
