Welcome

Wikipedia currently hosts over 200 biographies of classicists, and when the Women's Classical Committee looked in January 2017 only approximately 10% were of women. This project is our initiative to take steps towards redressing this gender imbalance, by training and encouraging classicists - whether archaeologists, epigraphers, historians, linguists, numismatists, philologists or anyone else working within this varied discipline - to edit Wikipedia with this focus.

We hold editing sessions online each month and welcome new members to our friendly group. See our events and workshops page for more info.

Dorothy Tarrant (1885–1973) was the first female professor of Greek in the UK, teaching at Bedford College, London from 1909 to 1950. She researched the work of Plato, pioneering the use of stylistic analysis to conclude that he had not written all the work previously attributed to him. She was active in the Classical Association and became its first woman president in 1958.
