Women of Wikipedia is the 5th annual Emory Libraries edit-a-thon dedicated to improving Wikipedia articles about notable women. In honor of Social Justice Day, participants will learn how to edit the content of Wikipedia articles related to women of all races, nationalities and ethnicities (including transgender and nonbinary) who have made significant contributions to their field. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend and make a positive difference in how we talk and write about women on the web. No experience required—we’ll teach you all you need to know to participate. FOOD WILL BE SERVED! Read our blog post for more details about what a Wikipedia editathon entails and how to participate. If you’re ready to sign up, please RSVP and then join the dashboard. This is a public event, so invite your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors! This event is made possible with support from Art+Feminism, a global campaign that supports improving articles about women and aims to encourage more women to become Wikipedia editors. + Room 215, Woodruff Library Campus Events
