Women’s History Month Wikipedia Editathon 🌟

16 March @ 08:00 17:00 UTC

Join us for our first ever Women’s History Month Wikipedia Editathon.

We use Women’s History Month (WHM) to celebrate the contributions made by women to society, including politics, history, art, sport, and STEM – and we remember and honour the women who made them!

This Women’s History Month, we will be joined by Wikimedia’s Dr Sara Thomas. We’ll work together to ensure key information about the women featured in our collection – including Livingstone’s incredible wife, Mary – is online for the world to see.

Come along and learn how to edit Wikipedia, discover the women who feature so strongly in Livingstone’s life, and contribute to recording history.
