WikiWomen's History Month
WikiWomen's History Month is a wiki-coordinated campaign of article writing, image/picture creating, international events and edit-a-thons. Our work centers around International Women's Day and Women's History Month. We coordinate our efforts with other on-wiki and off-wiki communities, such as WikiProject Women's History.
- Welcoming to everyone, especially new Wikipedians and Wikipedian-wannabes looking to contribute on women in history
- Allows diverse local focuses on aspects of Women's History
- It's fun!
- Find inspiration for articles to be expanded or creation here (and add to it!): Wikipedia:WikiWomen's History Month/Missing articles.
- Share your outcomes on the yearly Outcomes pages. We'll be promoting these successes via social media and let's work together to continue to improve them!
- WikiProjects are encouraged to create and develop women's history month focuses for the month of March.
