Inspired by the work of scholars Thomas Dublin and Rosalyn Terborg-Penn and the online database Women and Social Movements in the United States 1600-2000, this year’s Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon will seek to create and improve Wikipedia entries on Black and militant women suffragists.

The event is in collaboration with two history classes, but the edit-a-thon is open to anyone interested.

This event is part of Open Access Week.
