Gender bias on Wikipedia is well documented. When biographies of women make up only 18% of the biographies on the English language Wikipedia site, information gets skewed and misrepresented. Let’s change that! Join us to improve representation on Wikipedia for cis and trans women, no experience required!

University librarians and faculty will be on hand to assist with research and as needed, tutorials will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers.

Can’t be there the whole time? No problem. Join us for as little or as long as you like. Katrina Jagodinsky, Susan J. Rosowski Associate Professor of History, will start off the event with brief remarks shortly after 1p.m.
This is a hybrid event, participants may join in person in Room 221 Love Library or by Zoom.
