International Women’s Day edit-a-thon together with Wikimedia
Group Working Space 3 – from 10.30 – 13.00
For 2020 Open Data Day Wikimedia together with partners invites you to attend the largest International Women’s Day edit-a-thon at Helsinki Central Library Oodi. The event is intended to raise awareness of the unequal coverage of women in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is one of the most important sources of information worldwide and gets millions of visitors and reviews each day, however only one in five biographies are written about a female figure. This means that an uncountable number of women scientists, artists and activists are missing from most popular website. We want to change that. The event is intended to introduce as well as narrow the gap between reading and editing Wikipedia content.
