Writing women back into history

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.
