What you’ll do

Bring along your laptop or tablet and help us write women into history by editing the world’s biggest encyclopaedia. Suggest or discover a notable woman to share with the world by creating or improving a Wikipedia article, and help to fix the gender gap with the support of a community passionate about improving the internet. All you need is a laptop or tablet – we will provide training for even complete beginners.
