Humanist Women Wikithon
Women were among the creators, sustainers, and pioneers of the organised humanist movement in the UK. But how many of their names do we actually know?
Join us for our second Wikipedia edit-a-thon (via Zoom) to celebrate humanist women, and improve their representation on the English-language Wikipedia.
We'll be highlighting some of the incredible women who lived out humanist values as freethinkers, activists, organisers, and ethical society members. Drawing on research undertaken as part of our Humanist Heritage project, this session will kick off with a short talk about the lives and contributions of these women, before introducing how (and why!) to get them represented on Wikipedia.
No Wikipedia experience is required, so newbies and confident editors alike are welcome. See you there!
