Remembering stories of women in science is more important than ever. Women are still underrepresented in many scientific fields, and they sometimes face discrimination at the Smithsonian and at other scientific institutions. By ensuring that women's stories are identified and shared, we remember that women have always played a foundational role in the sciences. Alanna Edwards with the Surrey Art Gallery says it's long been established that the vast majority of Wikipedia editors are men, which can affect what appears on one of the most-viewed websites on the planet. The event, which is free and open to the public, is 1 to 4 p.m. March 28 in Love Library, Room 221 or via Zoom. Registration required. During this event, attendees will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia and help combat the gender gap on Wikipedia by updating and creating articles related to the history of women in science at the Smithsonian. Alanna Edwards with the Surrey Art Gallery says it's long been established that the vast majority of Wikipedia editors are men, which can affect what appears on one of the most-viewed websites on the planet. "I think it's important to edit on Wikipedia because without women telling their own stories, without these stories being recorded, content can be skewed and become problematic," she said. This event is planned in conjunction with the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives and the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative, a multiyear undertaking to document, research, collect, display, and share the history of women in the United States.
