#WikiGap – let’s close the internet gender gap

[Brussels 28 February 2018] On International Women’s Day, 8 March 2018, together with the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU, Wikimedia Belgium we will take joint action to make the internet more gender equal. Join us at this three-hour event to write and edit articles on Wikipedia based on information on women profiles, experts and role models in European politics. Wikimedia will introduce you to the basics of Wikipedia and how to edit it. Feminist blogger and activist Linnéa Claeson will be there to help us write and edit articles.

#WikiGap aims to provide a platform for volunteers who want to contribute to a more gender-equal internet. During the event, articles will not be written or edited by the Permanent Representation of Sweden; instead, this will be done by those taking part in the workshop.

Date: 8 March 2018
