Similar events are also being held in Scotland that week.

Research

If possible, undertake research for information about subjects on Wikimedia's list of women, alive or dead, as role models, to have material (book reference, web page etc) ready for adding to their pages on Wikipedia during the Editathon. If you have any questions , do ask me - there will be some research already undertaken which you could use in the editathon, if you have not been able to bring some.
