Tired of our sources of knowledge reflecting the same biases as society? Get involved in our Women@Liverpool Wikipedia edit-a-thon!

This Women@Liverpool session will offer the opportunity to create, edit and add to Wikipedia pages on women who have inspired our research and practice. Our event is part of a movement to bring gender equality to a crucial platform, where reports suggest less than 20% of profiles and contributors are women.

The event will be convened by Professor Michelle Henning (she/her, Media and Communications).
