Women's Suffrage Centennial Wikipedia Editing Workshop

Suffragists Parade Down Fifth Avenue, 1917

Did you know that Wikipedia is an openly editable resource, meaning that anyone can improve the quality and accuracy of Wikipedia entries? Data has shown that less than 18% of biographies on English-language Wikipedia are about women. Help to change that by joining us on January 14 for the Women's Suffrage Centennial Wikipedia Editing Workshop. Attendees will learn how to edit Wikipedia and work together to improve and create Wikipedia articles related women's suffrage in the United States.

Training will be provided, and no prior knowledge of suffrage history or Wikipedia editing is required.

Please bring your own laptop. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing
