Wikipedia:WikiProject Women's History/Ada Lovelace Day London 2013 Conway Hall
|Conway Hall archives|
Wikimedia UK and Conway Hall are organising an editathon to utilise Conway Hall's archives, hosted in the library at Conway Hall in London on Thursday, 17th October 2013. The aim of this event as part of Ada Lovelace Day is to attempt to address Wikipedia's gender bias by creating or improving articles about notable women. (Also see here).
The aim of the event is to improve the coverage of an assortment of nineteenth century organisations and people - especially related to the atheist movement. As well as subject expertise, Conway Hall has an archive which holds a lot of material that has been accumulated by the South Place Ethical Society. We will be able to use that during the event.
