Women are still largely under-represented in architecture and the history of architecture. Of the 650 architects’ archives in the State Archive for Dutch Architecture and Urban Planning, only fifteen were created by women. And the number of Wikipedia entries on female architects is also lagging behind. Join the Wikipedia edit-a-thon: Unforgetting women architects to add information from the archives and library on female architects to Wikipedia.

Under the professional guidance of the Dutch Wikipedia gender gap work group and with the official support of Dutch Wikimedia, Het Nieuwe Instituut is organising a writing afternoon. The session is open to both beginners and experienced writers, and no previous knowledge is required. Places are limited, so please register in advance.
As inspiration, the work group has posted a list of desired articles, links to source materials and tips for writing Wikipedia biographies on the special Wikipedia project page.
