The Global Women’s Network (GWN) is the wikipedia of women's and girls' organizations. We strive to be the largest collaborative information source on women’s and girls’ organizations operating around the world. We create a virtual space for organizations working on issues related to women and girls to connect, collaborate, and create change at the local, national, and global level. GWN is in need of volunteers, what we call wiki-activists, to contribute to our site by adding information on women's and girls' organizations. By becoming a wiki-activist you can research organizations, educate yourself on the issues they work on, and contribute to the site by including them on the Global Women's Network. It's simple (no technological experience is needed), it's fun, and your work will help us become the largest and most in-depth information source on women's and girls' organizations around the world.
