Q: I love what you are doing! Can you please come speak at my event?

We’re so honored that you care for this work! We love to talk about all the amazing women journalists who should be credited for their tremendous contributions, and the ways we are working toward that goal. Please contact our Events Manager, Jareen Imam and we’ll plan together!

We are ready to speak on panels, host panels, give keynotes or instructional talks. We are also especially seeking partners to host day-long or multi-day edit-a-thons.

(Please be patient and keep in mind that we are volunteers with busy lives. Also, we appreciate stipends, donations and travel reimbursements to help grow our program and support the people who run it.)


Q: There’s an error on Wikipedia! Can you please fix it?

The short answer is not right away. We don’t as an organization correct or create entries on demand. Rather, if you are nominated, we monitor your entry and create a framework for volunteers (who do not know you) to choose from many assignments as they like.

But Wikipedia itself does have a way to ask for corrections. Volunteer Amanda Hickman explains it this way:

The process that you’re supposed to go through if you can’t edit a page due to your own Conflict of Interest is to go to the talk page of the entry in question and make a formal Edit Request.  In many cases that’s enough, especially if it’s a basic factual correction.

Create a login and then use the edit request template to formally request the edit on the Talk page of the entry in question. Expect to check back in on the page every day or so a week after you post the request.

It helps if you can provide documentation or a source for the correct information. You can save the editor who takes your request a ton of work if you follow the citation formats for sources, such as websites, news articles or magazines.


Q: I have no time to work on Wikipedia, but I want to support you! How?

We totally get it! Even the board has more time some months than others. But we all do what we can. Sometimes that’s time and work, and sometimes it’s a donation. We are raising a modest annual budget to keep our online presence alive and support the planning and execution of edit-a-thons and other programming.

Another way you can support the cause is by telling you friends and others about the new entries we create. Be sure to subscribe to the email list for updates.
