Many scholars and policy makers have noted that women have historically been under-represented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and maths. This marginalisation is also evident on Wikipedia. Articles on Irish women in STEM are particularly deficient. You can help!
Wikimedia Community Ireland are running a workshop on Wikipedia editing at Science Gallery Dublin. Join us at our Women in STEM edit-a-thon, hosted by WITS, to learn how to write and improve articles on Wikipedia. We can do it!
Participants are welcome to drop in, or stay for the four hours, experienced Wikipedia editors will be on hand to get you started with your first few edits or helping you improve your skills. Previous events have seen the publication of articles of women that were previously unrepresented like Matilda Cullen Knowles, Alice Perry and Maude Delap. All you need is a laptop to participate, WiFi will be provided.
