A Wiki-Week Editing Extravaganza has been planned to coincide with International Women’s Day on 8 March 2022. This event will kick start with an in-person edit-a-thon on Saturday 5 March, with two additional opportunities to connect throughout the week. Please register for each event below that you plan on attending.
Attendees can continue to edit outside of these sessions and statistics will be collated at the end of the week. Experienced and newbie editors are all welcome and catering will be provided at the in-person event on 5 March (thanks to Wikimedia Australia).
This 2022 edit-a-thon will adopt the International Women’s Day theme of #BreakTheBias.
“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias. Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.”
During our Wiki-Week Editing Extravaganza we will focus on 3 groups of women:
Lists of relevant subjects and associated resources will be provided prior to event, including suggested articles for creation and Wikipedia stub articles that require improvement.
As we look ahead to the edit-a-thon(s) you might like to take a look at the Wikipedia Article Guide and the AWR List. Please give some thought to women that you might like to write about. There are over 600 women currently listed, with those shaded in blue already having a Wikipedia page.
The editing session on 9 March will kick start our Wiki-Wednesdays for the year. In 2022 we will hold these editing sessions on the 1st Wednesday of every month. Please note these dates in your diaries now. You are always welcome to join us. Please email Kerrie Burn if you would like to be emailed the Zoom link.
