American Women and the Vote

American Women and the Vote

Wiki Education, in collaboration with the National Archives, is offering a virtual professional development course that trains individuals with a research interest in political science, women’s rights, history, and related fields to successfully contribute to Wikipedia.

Participants in this new course will learn how to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of the history of women’s voting rights in the United States in honor of an upcoming exhibit hosted at the National Archives Museum,  Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote.. Take an active role in ensuring that the world’s most popular reference source is more representative, accurate, and complete. Apply to be a part of this unique initiative today!
