Did you know that 90 % of Wikipedia content is created by men? Perhaps this explains why there are four times as many articles about men than women on Wikipedia. Is it really true that there are not more women that the world should know about? Can we find more examples of historical women leaders who deserve their own Wiki entry? Let’s change it together!

On International Women’s Day (March 8), U.S. Embassy Prague together with the Embassy of Sweden and Embassy of Canada invite you to an event at the American Center during which we will use Wikipedia to enter as many inspirational articles about women as possible.

The event is supported by Wikimedia Česká republika.

How does it work?

We will help you navigate Wikipedia editing. Bring your own notebook if you can. Both women and men are welcome! Join us from your home if you are unable to come. We will provide a list of inspirational women who deserve their own entry. If you have an idea for an inspirational women who does not have her Wiki entry, please, let us know at acprague@state.gov
