This site is designed to accompany the Women in Red series of Wikipedia edit-a-thon events run by the University of Edinburgh.
It covers the key information you need to know and will help you complete micro-tasks to help improve the knowledge available online about notable women (or any topic!) as well as how to get started preparing for an edit-a-thon of your own.
Now let’s cover the tasks you’ll need to complete before arriving at the Women in Red event on the next page.
