Women of Skye | Wikipedia edit-a-thon
19 October 2018 until 20 October 2018
Portree Community Library
Did you know that as of September 2018 only 17.77% of all English Wikipedia biographies are about women?
Or that a 2011 survey for the Wikimedia Foundation revealed less than 10% of its contributors were female?
Help us change this! Join us on the 19th and 20th October for a Wiki edit-a-thon where we will take a closer look at women of Skye, past and present and try to re-address some of the gender bias in Wikipedia.
With specially trained Wikipedia editors on hand, together we will research historical women who have been overlooked or undervalued and create or update Wikipedia entries in an attempt to shine a light on some of the achievements and stories of women of Skye.

We would encourage people of all gender identities and expressions to participate.
