Women in Jewish History Edit-a-thon @ Center for Jewish History

15 West 16th Street, New York, NY
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm, Sun June 5

Join us for a full Sunday of social Wikipedia editing at Center for Jewish
History (drop-in any time!), during which we will create, update, and
improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to Women in Jewish History.

All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia
editing experience required.

Expanding coverage of Jewish women on Wikipedia makes these women and their
creations discoverable, addresses the gender bias on Wikipedia in a
positive way, and works to correct imbalances archival collecting practice
and institutional projects that have historically silenced women's

A training session on editing Wikipedia will be held at 12:30 pm.
Experienced Wikipedians will be on-hand to assist throughout the day.
Please bring your laptop and power cord; we will have library resources,
WiFi, and a list of suggested topics on hand.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Make edits! Ask questions! Be bold!
