Women's History Month at Mount Holyoke College
Library, Information, and Technology Services (LITS) is hosting a Wikipedia edit-a-thon on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, in the Library's Stimson Room from 4 to 6pm! Celebrate Women's History Month by editing the pages of Mount Holyoke College alumnae and writing women into Wikipedia and back into history!

The event is open to all students, faculty, staff, and alumnae -- new and experienced Wikipedia editors alike. Nine out of 10 Wikipedia editors are currently men[1], and we're aiming to change that number by getting more women at MHC involved. Be there for editing, treats, and buttons!
