Just a little about me[edit | edit source]
You will find me at my English Wikipedia page
My name, given here, is pronounced Auntie Kate.
I edited like a mad thing for the start of last year - the whole first half of the year before the pandemic and working from home and all got the better of me. It's time to reboot and start again for 2021. I am still adding to my to do list faster than I can create articles.
My goal is to make it so that when you look for people who do X you get a fair number of women in the list and not just men. This means improving the number of women who have articles on Wikipedia.
I have a particular interest in Irish women and have focused on revolutionaries, pioneers and writers but I will take on any woman I find interesting or notable.
If you are interested in joining me, I work with Women in Red but I also have a bunch of links to how to guides on how to edit and pages of who to edit.
If you are new to Wikipedia I will help if I can, just ask,
Wikimania attendance[edit | edit source]
