From the project page (accessed 2019-08-14):

Wikipedia currently hosts over 200 biographies of classicists, and when the Women's Classical Committee looked in January 2017 only approximately 10% were of women. This project is our initiative to take steps towards redressing this gender imbalance, by training and encouraging classicists—whether archaeologists, epigraphers, historians, linguists, numismatists, philologists or anyone else working within this varied discipline—to edit Wikipedia with this focus.

We hold editing sessions online each month and welcome new members to our friendly group. See our events and workshops page for more info.
