Knowledge is power, and Wikipedia has the potential to influence our view of the world. But there is great imbalance between men and women on the website, like in society at large. There are four times as many articles about men as there are about women. We want to change this. Join us and help to close Wikipedia's gender gap by editing and creating Wikipedia articles about Women, Health & Environment. This will be a hybrid event with in-person sessions in Washington, DC and in New York as well as a virtual session for those who wish to attend remotely. Please bring a laptop if planning to join us in-person. Training for new Wikipedia editors will be provided. The event is organized by Wikimedia DC, Wikimedia NYC, the Embassy of Sweden to the United States, Sweden’s Consulate General in New York, and the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the United Nations.
