Description

Feminism in India invites you to a Wikipedia Edita-a-thon on 'Indian Women In Politics'. In this Edit-a-thon, articles will be created and edited on Indian women politicians who either have no representation on Wikipedia or very less information is available on them. The articles will be created/edited in English and any other language the participant is comfortable in.

Why are we doing this? We are all aware of the large reach and popularity of Wikipedia. However, information pertaining to Indian women politicians is scant or non-existent on Wikipedia.

What will we do? During the event, the first hour will be dedicated to introduction and briefing on how to create and edit articles on Wikipedia. Then participants will work in groups or individually on a pre-made list of women politicians in various cities which lack representation on Wikipedia. At the end of the day, all of this newly made Wikipedia pages will be collated.

When? 10 AM - 6 PM IST, Saturday, July 29, 2017

Where? TBA

Who can come? Anyone who is willing to help and create Wikipedia pages. No prior knowledge of creating/editing Wikipedia pages is needed. We especially encourage trans people and women to join us

Any other important information: Please bring your laptop along
