Royal Society Wikipedia edit-a-thon for women in science

On Friday 19 October, the Royal Society hosted a group edit-a-thon, in 
partnership with Wikimedia UK, to improve Wikipedia articles about women in 
science.  Find out more 

Professor Uta Frith FRS, who was involved in organising the event, said:

“It’s shameful that when you ask people, including scientists, to name well-known female 
scientists and engineers they can barely get past Marie Curie. I think this is very much because they are 
not in our consciousness or they have not been given high enough profile for their work. Wikipedia is one 
of the first places that many people go for information but if it’s not there how will we ever learn 
about our scientific heroines. This event is a very small but important step towards putting these very 
special women in the spotlight they deserve.”

Attendees worked together to edit articles, using the library's resources.

In support of the event, Royal Society Publishing has highlighted biographies 
of selected female Fellows of the Royal Society, which are freely accessible 
until 29 November 2012
