March 6th: Edit-a-Thon

Edit-a-Thon 03

On Friday, March 6th, we will be writing historical figures marginalized because of their gender into Wikipedia. Not only will we be contributing to the world of free knowledge and ensuring the existence of a gender inclusive history of everything, we will be training people how to make effective and engaging entries that will outlive the participation of their creators – ensuring the digital legacy of women, trans, and/or gender non-conforming people in multiple discipline, fields, and periods of history.

RSVP by March 1st! Space is limited.
