Op 8 maart organiseren wij, als onderdeel van een internationale #Wikigap actie, in samenwerking met de Zweedse Ambassade een unieke #Wikigap bijeenkomst in Den Haag. Je bent van harte uitgenodigd om aan te sluiten, zowel online of offline (beperkt aantal plaatsen beschikbaar). De officiële uitnodiging lees je hieronder.
The Swedish government is the first government in the world to have declared a feminist foreign policy, where equal representation for men and women is one of the fundamentals.
Wikipedia is a leading online encyclopedia, but there are currently more than four times as many articles written about men than women. In addition, 90% of those who write articles on Wikipedia are men. The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Wikimedia want to put the spotlight on this inequality.
As a part of this initiative, the Swedish Embassy in The Hague has partnered with Wikimedia Nederland to create a local Wikipedia edit-a-thon inviting people to help us write articles about leading women in science, business, culture and politics. Wikimedia will be present to hold a short introduction on how to write articles for Wikipedia and will act as supervisors to guide our invited writers during the event.
We also invite you to join us for drinks after the writing session to round up the day.
Do you want to join us at this unique event?
Please bring your own laptop. Due to space limitations we can unfortunately only host up to 15 people, thus first come first served. Please register before March 2.

Over 40 Swedish embassies around the world will simultaneously organize local #WikiGap edit-a-thons on March 8, as part of a larger initiative by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Wikimedia. The main event will take place at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, where students are invited to write articles about leading women to help bridge the internet gender gap.
