Wiki activists help to write Cambodian women’s history, Phnom Penh Post

The article in the link below highlights the efforts of my Khmer team and I in writing more Wikipedia articles about prominent women and celebrating the achievements of Khmer women and women everywhere!

The Phnom Penh Post featured the effort of a group of Khmer Wikipedian editors including yours truly (me). Vantharith Oum led the team in Cambodia to make edits and create new articles in Khmer language while I am located in Singapore, so I am leading an online team via Skype to make edits and create new articles about Cambodian prominent women in the English Wikipedia. Our online volunteers are located in Cambodia, Australia, and the US.

March is the month of Pisces (which secretly is my birthday month!) And, the International Women’s Rights Day was actually my birthday. This year, I was so happy to do such a cool project during my birthday, of course without letting any one of my volunteers know it was my birthdate. By the way, enjoy the article above. If you are interested in writing the history online, do get in touch with me via bluealdyblog[gmail].com.

P.S. There’s an old article about us written previously by the Phnom Penh Post.  Read it here: Young Khmer pioneers blaze a Wikipedia trail
