Join Wiki Education as we spotlight the history of women in politics in the United States for the public! In our upcoming virtual course, subject-matter experts will immerse themselves in the world of Wikipedia to share key information with the electorate about women’s political participation—both as the electorate and as political leaders. The types of topics you may choose to delve into include: women’s voting participation, women political candidates and leaders, candidates for the 2024 election, and the history of women in politics in the United States.
Contributing to this course not only shapes the narrative of women in politics but also addresses the gender gap prevalent in Wikipedia biographies, where only 19% depict women. Your participation adds vital perspectives, diversifying and enriching the representation of women in this global knowledge repository.
