Amnesty Ireland and Wikimedia Ireland are hosting a Brave Edit, a Wiki edit-a-thon to shine a light on unsung women human rights defenders.
Join us on Monday 9 December, Human Rights Defender Day to learn how to promote incredible women’s rights activists at a Wikipedia activism masterclass and edit-a-thon.
Did you know that only 18 per cent of notable profiles on Wikipedia are of women? Even fewer are of women human rights defenders.
Women human rights defenders are systematically discriminated against. With a better understanding of who they are, the work they do and the injustices that hold them back every day, people can support them. Making these women more visible among Wikipedia’s millions of daily users will also make it harder for existing powers to ignore, repress, attack and silence them. Participants will bring them to a worldwide audience where they belong.
Everyone is welcome to join BRAVE:Edit.
You will get training on the day, and will get the opportunity to edit, update or create new entries on Wikipedia. Refreshments will be provided, please register. https://www.amnesty.ie/brave-edit/
When: Monday 9 December - 17:30- 21:00
Where: Amnesty International Ireland, 48 Fleet Street, Dublin 2
