Women's Day events in India, March 8

Rohini Lakshané
A few online and offline events are being conducted in on the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8. The events continue thereafter too as March has been declared as Women's History Month.

There is a Wikipedia editing workshop in Goa on March 8 at Nirmala Institute of Education from 3 pm to 5 pm. It is followed by an offline and online editathon.
The online editathon is a month-long affair, which will be held every weekend starting with the weekend after March 8. 
Details here:

The goal of the month-long event is to encourage more women to contribute to Wikipedia and increase representation of articles related to women in Wikipedia. The event aims at creating new articles, expanding the existing stubs and translating English articles to various Indian languages.

Members are requested to start edithons in regional language Wikipedias.

Regards,
Rohini Lakshane

Dear Rohini,

Just to extend this fantastic initiative, here's some more good news! The Hindi bloggers' club at IIT-Bombay called 'Vaani' wanted to have a Hindi Wikipedia workshop in March. Coincidentally, it is organized on March 9th from 5 to 9 pm. I will be attending the editing session. We are also planning to have a small workshop before that to make sure everyone's comfortable. We've proposed to make the editing session around women's articles!

I've listed some of the Hindi articles  that need expansion on the page you've made. It would be awesome if you or anyone else who is in Mumbai wants to join! There are a few Marathi Wikipedians from IIT who have also shown interest but I am yet to receive a confirmation. Just wanted to tell you that the good word's spreading :)

Best,

Noopur

Dear all,

   There is one more day left for participating in the first online edit-a-thon happening in connection with International women's day celebrations in India. Thirteen new articles have been created as a part of the edit-a-thon. Volunteers from Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi have initiated edit-a-thons in their respective languages and have produced wonderful results so far.

If you are interested in creating/expanding articles related to women, sign up today on the event page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/International_Women%27s_Day,_India

A news report about the women's day events was posted by Vaishali Chitnis on Loksatta newspaper. The news report can be read here: http://www.loksatta.com/mumbai-news/wikipedia-celebrate-international-womens-day-75560/

Thanks
