United Nations Women Edit-a-thon is a global project and Edit-a-Thon that will be held on 2016 International Youth Day on Friday, August 12, 2016. This event is organized by the Wikipedia community, supported by United Nations Women and joined by UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth. The main event will be held in United Nations Headquarters in New York City, and many local events, as well virtual Edit-a-Thons, which aim to promote Wikipedia content that will help close the gender gap.

Knowledge is both a resource and an investment, and like all other forms of wealth, it is often differentially distributed throughout a social system. In many areas, information simply does not exist, and where it does exist, it is often sexist. Gender knowledge gaps and biases reinforce the harmful stereotypes and practices, and often misrepresent women and girls, and undercut or undervalue their contributions locally and globally. It is 2016, and we cannot tolerate leaving women and girls behind anymore.

As Wikipedia compiles what represents close to the sum of all human knowledge, women should be recognized as part of that sum. Empower Women by UN Women, the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth, the UN Inter-agency Network on Youth Development's Working Group on Youth and Gender Equality, and a group of volunteer champions are working on enhancing and increasing the content on Wikipedia related to women and gender equality to raise awareness, close the gender knowledge gap, and start changing and editing the future. If you believe in the notion of online collaboration for the greater good and gender equality and have been impacted by an inspiring woman in your lifetime, join our campaign and make them more visible to inspire millions. Help us celebrate HerStory edit-a-thons to close the gender knowledge gap on International Youth Day on August 12, 2016.

Join HerStory edit-a-thons to contribute, promote, and celebrate women of the world. Make sure you going to be an agent of this herstorical change.
