Women on Wikipedia
Norwegian minister of culture, Mrs Torild Widvey, writes on Wikipedia
The Norwegian minister of culture, Mrs Torild Widvey, edited her first Wikipedia article on March 6th. No coincident, just 2 days before the International Women´s Day. This launched our female editor relay in 2014, commemorating the 1814 Constitution anniversary. The minister of culture has already challenged the next woman, Director general of the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO), Kristin Skogen Lund to write an article on Wikipedia. All contributors will write about a topic they find important related to the 1814 Constitution anniversary celebrated throughout 2014 in Norway. Our goal with this female editor relay is to motivate all women to contribute to Wikipedia with their knowledge.

Monthly Glam edit-a-thons
In 2014 there will be monthly GLAM edit-a-thons held in collaboration with different museums, archives, cinemas and libraries. The first one was at the Norsk Folkemuseum in February and in March we will visit Preus Museum. The edit-a-thons will be organized in a way that both people who are new to Wikipedia and people with lots of experience can contribute.
We started the edit-a-thon with a guided tour in one of the current exhibitions at Norsk Folkemuseum
