*#WikiGap – let’s close the internet gender gap*

On International Women’s Day, the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the
EU, Wikimedia Belgium and the European Women’s Lobby will take joint action
to make the internet more gender equal. Join us at this three-hour event to
write and edit articles on Wikipedia based on information on women
profiles, experts and role models in European politics. Wikimedia will
introduce you to the basics of Wikipedia and how to edit it. Feminist
blogger and activist Linnéa Claeson will be there to help us write and edit

#WikiGap aims to provide a platform for volunteers who want to contribute
to a more gender-equal internet. During the event, articles will not be
written or edited by the Permanent Representation of Sweden; instead, this
will be done by those taking part in the workshop.
