Did you know that only 17% of the biographical subjects and 9% of the editors on Wikipedia are women? The 1,000 Women in Religion Project – a major initiative of the AAR/SBL Women’s Caucus – is working to raise up the under-recognized work of women in the world’s religious and wisdom traditions by adding 1,000 women in religion onto Wikipedia. In this workshop participants will sign up as wiki-editors, learn the basics of editing, create their personal talk pages, do hands-on editing and start their first article by outlining the all-important lead paragraph. This is not a workshop for the technologically elite. We will walk you through the process one easy step at a time. Come join us in this practical, down to earth, effort aimed at lifting up the work of women in religion in ways that reform the gender biases that shape our systems of knowledge production.

Cost is free. Attendees need to bring their own laptop to participate.
