I /finally/ joined this list the other day! So hello! I'm Sarah, a long
time Wikipedian and I'm serving as a community fellow at the Foundation,
focusing on gender gap work. I actually split my time between Washington
DC and San Francisco, where my family lives. I'm wrapping up my master's
here in DC and will be moving back to the Bay Area come early June.
Anyhoo, enough about me.
March is International Women's History Month and I'm just curious if
anyone on list have anything planned to celebrate in regards to outreach
events. We'll be having an edit-a-thon here in Washington, DC related to
women in science! I'd love to see something taking place in San
Francisco, of course, and have Wikimedians regardless of gender inspire
one another to contribute to women's history coverage on any language
Of course, outreach events that bring new users would be fabulous as well!
I'd like to provide support anyway I can, please let me know if you'd
like assistance in making something wonderful happen in your area.
I'll be developing a page on Wiki to celebrate events, and it'd be
wonderful to have events to fill it up with, of course! This could be as
simple as having an edit-a-thon with friends at your house, to having a
more structured event. I'd also love to see some outreach events that
involve photographs of historical landmarks related to women's history.
I look forward to hearing from you, and feel free to forward this
message to any appropriate people or parties!
