Details of Meetup[edit]

The meetup aims to encourage more women to become Wikipedia editors and also address the difficulties and challenges faced by women while contributing to Wikipedia and editing its pages. Women Wikipedians will interact with each other. This will provide them an opportunity to learn about Wikipedia in a bias-free environment. There will be discussions about the upcoming projects to bridge the Gender Gap.
