Did you know that only 18% of the 1.5 million biographies of notable people in Wikipedia are women? Washingtonians, let’s change that!


During Women’s History Month this year, we hosted Washington State Historical Society’s first ever Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon. In partnership with Women in Red’s initiative to focus on creating articles on notable suffragists, Washington State Historical Society has created a platform for Washingtonians everywhere to help create and edit articles on our local suffragists.

 

Visit our Wikipedia GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) page for information on how you can get started editing Wikipedia and what articles need to be created or improved. We will be adding new suggestions throughout 2019 and 2020 and need all hands on deck!
