Edit-a-thon for Women Philosophers

at WikiConference North America in the San Diego Central Library
In memory of Kevin Gorman
Saturday's edit-a-thon is in memory of Kevin Gorman. An advocate for gender equality on Wikipedia, Kevin's mission included rectifying the under representation of feminist philosophy and women philosophers. Working in part from a list that Kevin started in 2013, the edit-a-thon will focus on creating and expanding articles on women in philosophy.
Those who wish to participate on-site must register for Saturday of the conference. Registration is free.
