Invitation to the GenderGap edit-a-thon in March 2018
#WikiGap – let’s close the internet gender gap
On International Women’s Day, the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU, Wikimedia Belgium and the European Women’s Lobby will take joint action to make the internet more gender equal. Join us at this three-hour event to write and edit articles on Wikipedia based on information on women profiles, experts and role models in European politics. Wikimedia will introduce you to the basics of Wikipedia and how to edit it. Feminist blogger and activist Linnéa Claeson will be there to help us write and edit articles.
#WikiGap aims to provide a platform for volunteers who want to contribute to a more gender-equal internet. During the event, articles will not be written or edited by the Permanent Representation of Sweden; instead, this will be done by those taking part in the workshop.
If you do not have an account yet on Wikipedia, please create one before 8 March.
