#VisibleWikiWomen 2023 new launch date: decentering March 08

For the past five years, we have launched the #VisibleWikiWomen campaign on the 8th of March, in commemoration of International Women’s Day. This date has always been a combination of celebration and resistance for us. This year, after many conversations, and deeper reflections on where we want the campaign to go – in different and radical ways - we’ve made the decision to decenter International Women’s Day.
