The Zebra Partnership joined forces with a variety of organisations to host a communal wiki update on 8-9 October 2018 to improve the coverage of women and diversity on Wikipedia. The Pankhurst Centre kindly agreed to be our Zebra Hub on 9th October 2018

Joining Google Expert and The People’s Hub Founder and Ethical Director Susan Dolan and Northern PowerWomen finalist and RSA Fellow Carol Ann Whitehead FRSA is co-Founder of WikiWomenInRed and Global Wiki Equality Advocate Roger Bamkin and Information and knowledge expert Dr Marianne Bamkin

Wikipedia is the first to admit that they have some big gender and diversity gaps. In 2011 only 10% of wiki contributors were female and in 2018 only 17% of entries are about women. Let’s help change that!

Hubs worldwide joined forces for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to women and diversity in science, technology, art, business and more. London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Stockport in the UK to New Zealand, Germany, New Mexico and Dubai.

Carol Ann supported the first United Nations Youth Association Wikieditathon in Denmark for International Women’s Day 2019.

Huge ‘Thank You’ to Katy Alexander and her team at Digital Science for coordinating this.

Zebra Hub Hosts:

Carol Ann Whitehead and Google Expert Susan Dolan.

We'll have regular updates and more information as and when we get it.

The event is free however a donation to the amazing work the Pankhurst Trust does will be greatly appreciate.
