Wikipedia doesn’t have many women editors, and the articles about or involving women leave something to be desired in both quality and quantity. Next month, there will be a virtual edit-a-thon aimed at improving women’s representation on the site. The dates are loosely defined as March 9-13 (but it doesn’t really matter: that’s the beauty of a virtual event dedicated to pushing around 1s and 0s). I’m going to be lending a hand on March 11 at a meatspace edit-a-thon at Rosemont College.
See Michelle Moravec’s page to sign up, or peruse information on the genesis of the project and editing tips.
