WikiGap 2022 – writing about important women figures on Czech Wikipedia

We are launching our greatest event: WikiGap!
The goal is to get more female editors on Wikipedia and increase the number of articles about prominent women and women’s issues.

“Did you know that the Czech Wikipedia has five times more articles about men than women? And the proportion of female editors is less than 15%.”

WikiGap will include a series of editathons (editing workshops) and other activities aimed at reducing the gender gap on Wikipedia. You can take part in several events scheduled within WikiGap, or get involved online independently.

Opening editathon – 10 March 2022 (Thursday) 15:00 – 19:00

  • offline meeting at the American Center in Prague and the possibility to participate online via the Zoom platform (depending on the epidemiological situation, a change to an online-only format is possible)

Weekend Editathon – 20 March 2022 (Sunday) 15:00 – 18:00

  • online meeting via the Zoom platform

Editaton for Senior Participants (SePW) – 24 March 2022 16:30 – 19:30

  • online meeting via the Zoom platform

WikiGap Brno – 30 March 2022 (Wednesday) 16:30 – 19:30
