Why are we here? We’re here because less than 10% of editors on Wikipedia are women
Wikipedia is the largest and most popular general reference work on the internet with more than 40 million articles in more than 250 different languages. The fact is when we don’t tell our stories or participate in the ways our history is preserved, it gets erased. Gaps in the coverage of knowledge about gender, feminism, and the arts on one of the most visited websites in the world is a big problem and we need your help to fix it.
7 is our lucky number
2020 marks the sixth year of our campaign. Our project is about creating material on Wikipedia that people can use to learn the real history of gender, feminism, and the arts. We’re looking for individuals and institutions interested in volunteering to host events where they live or work. No previous experience needed! We've got a kit with everything you need to organize an A+F edit-a-thon where you live.
Our edit-a-thons take place worldwide
Every March since 2014, we've gathered at events around the world to create and improve thousands of Wikipedia pages. Come and press that edit button with us.
