We’d like to get the amazing stories of Essex women onto Wikipedia and to increase the amount of women’s history on the site. We are looking for an experienced Wikipedia editor to be our champion and support volunteers to add to the site.
Volunteer researchers for Snapping the Stiletto have uncovered a wealth of stories about strong Essex women over the last 100 years. They are helping us to get this information out to a wide audience and we have a travelling exhibition and are visiting events and festivals to celebrate Essex women. We’d love to add to Wikipedia but it’s become obvious that we need the help of an experienced Wikipedia editor to advise and support the project.
We’d like your advice and support so we can encourage volunteers to add to Wikipedia. This might be by holding an edit-a-thon which you could support, creating ‘how to’ guides or offering online and remote support. We would be looking to you for your advice on the best way to do this.
Why get involved?
Women are generally underrepresented on Wikipedia and you would be helping this project, deigned to celebrate strong Essex Women, to contribute stories to counteract this.
