I am writing to inform you that the UNESCO New Delhi office is hosting a
Women's Day edit-a-thon on 03rd March 2020. It will be a 2-hour long event
from 11 am to 1 pm. The theme for this year is "Women for change".
Wikimedians from any language community can join this event. The acceptable
number of participants is 20 and considering that this is a celebration of
women's day, preference will be given to females. We all appreciate the
contribution of all the amazing men who have always helped us in bridging
the gender gap but as this is a global day to celebrate the social,
economic, cultural and political achievements of women, we would like more
women to join the edit-a-thon. We would really appreciate everyone joining
us remotely. In case you wish to organize an edit-a-thon on the same theme
that day, please share your interest.
Please reply to this email or contact me directly before *26th February
2020* to submit your interest to be a part of this event.
Note: We will create a Telegram group with interested wikimedians, to
discuss this further.
