Editatona for Nicaraguan Women

The Editatona for Nicaraguan Women was a collective edition campaign for Wikipedia articles, which was carried out in 2016. It was organized by the group EnREDadas with the support of the Central American Women's Fund. This participatory initiative was part of a worldwide effort to increase the number of women by editing the online encyclopedia, Wikipedia. Above all, the entries related to women and the feminist figures of the country. The Editatona for Nicaraguan Women was a space in which women could contribute to the editing, translation and writing of knowledge in the field of Nicaraguan feminism.
