International Women’s Day has been commemorated every year on March 8 since 1911. It is a day to honor women’s achievements, and what better way to do that than by participating in an Edit-a-Thon aimed at improving the representation of women and gender minority linguists in Wikipedia? Only about 15% of biographies on Wikipedia are currently dedicated to women, and joining the Edit-a-Thon will allow you to help change this. Those of you who are new to Wikipedia editing, as well as those who already have experience, are welcome to join.
 
The Edit-a-Thon is sponsored by the Committee on Gender Equity in Linguistics (COGEL, formerly COSWL), and will be organized as a Zoom event, open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM (US Eastern Time) on March 8 to allow participants from different time zones to join in and work as part of a virtual community. Experienced Wiki editors will be available during this entire period to answer questions, help troubleshoot and help new editors get started.
 
Registration is required but free.  Read more and register for the Edit-a-Thon.
