Rosiestep is putting faces to pre-20th century women’s history

Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight, User:Rosiestep on Wikipedia, is a prolific editor who improves the encyclopedia in a number of ways. One of these ways is by uploading photos of pre-20th century women writers to Wikimedia Commons, which she then uses to illustrate biography articles that she’s written about them. Thanks to access to academic databases provided by Northeastern University, Rosie is putting faces to women’s history on the fifth most-accessed site in the world. Watch our short video for more:
