Feminists Engage Wikipedia

Please join us for the #tooFEW  “Feminists Engage Wikipedia” editing party! In congress with the other feminist THATCamps around the country, we are going to make a concerted effort to add content and images to Wikipedia’s articles about women and feminism. It will be an exciting event that will instantly make an impact on the world!

We will be working in person (at Honnold-Mudd Library in Claremont) from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. PST. We are encouraging all THATCamp attendees to join us and we welcome those who cannot attend in person to join us virtually.

Here are some of the ways that you can get involved:

Help generate ideas for new entries or entries to be improved – you can add your ideas to our working list here

Participate in wikipedia community
Sign up for a wikipedia account (consider using a pseudonym at the outset, you can always change it once you’re comfortable)

Watch this video to learn just how to edit wikipedia. Be sure to set aside some time for this video, it’s an hour long, and I recommend clicking on FLASH – it tends to play better that way. (Although, we will provide editing help at the edit-a-thon, if you don’t have time to do this.)

Join us virtually by doing your work during our edit-a-thon, tweet to let us know you’re out there using the hashtag #tooFEW

Join us in person in Claremont: 2nd Floor of Honnold-Mudd Library - follow the signs – 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Even if you can’t make it to one of our physical locations on the day of the edit-a-thon, you can participate virtually – use the hashtag #tooFEW to let us know you’re out there.

About wadewitz

I recently finished a dissertation on 18th-century children's literature - because I like reading morbid stories. Bring on the Edward Gorey. I can't be parted from my Droid, love all things Google, and am a dedicated Wikipedian.

    Is there a time on Friday and a location at Scripps that I’m missing somewhere? Thanks much.

  2. Hi Tassie,

    Location and other information is now up – had to migrate it over from other blog! So many blogs!

    Looking forward to seeing you there.
