Ok so I had a look on Google/Twitter and could not find a #Wikipedia #editathon for UK #BlackHistoryMonth so I thought I would host an informal one! If anyone wants to join then they can do so here: https://t.co/VGK6bOC8Xp
This might sound silly but I mean it seriously: Professional academics should spend more time editing Wikipedia. It's where most members of the public turn when they're trying to learn about a subject they are unfamiliar with.
Writing and editing #Wikipedia articles by scientists does not only help spread reliable information thst is accessible to the public, but also helps representing #WomenInScience, the work @jesswade is doing is a great example of the latter! https://t.co/NpBodzsg8l
@zeynep There has already been quite a bit of academic research into gender bias on Wikipedia (although the conclusions are not always clear), see e.g. this special issue of our monthly newsletter: https://t.co/hbG3UkNLYB ^TB
Yep. Wikipedia is a genuine huge barrier to women in public—most people’s first impression of someone is a Wikipedia page. Women are edited harshly, not contributed to, overlooked or deleted. You can help out by editing, adding and pushing back as much as possible. https://t.co/wwuklzErs1
