Wikipedia is one of the world's most used general reference websites. It contains more than 35 million articles in more than 300 languages, but it is susceptible to systemic bias.

About 85% of the editors on Wikipedia are men and alarmingly only about 17% of the biographical articles are about women.

This is our history and it is not being written.

You can make Wikipedia better and help us close the gender gap! Learn how to edit with Nikki Hentz and Liz Fowler. You just need to bring a laptop or tablet. We'll supply training and editing tips.

See you there!
