Unfinished Business Leeds: Wikithon - Women in Leeds

Online Event
Women challenging the Factory Acts Amendment Bill (1874) in the Leeds Mercury Offices
Dates and times

22 Nov 2020 1pm

Online Event

Celebrate some of the amazing women of Leeds past and present, by learning how to edit pages on Wikipedia and address its gender imbalance in this informal online workshop. With over 53 million articles, Wikipedia is hugely influential and has given the public more access to knowledge than ever before. However, Wikipedia is heavily weighted towards men, with just 18.44% of biographies on the UK site dedicated to women, and only 9% of contributors identifying as female. This is a friendly and practical session and no previous experience of editing Wikipedia is required.

This is a live online event. Bookers will be sent a link in advance giving access.
