Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf at  the BBC 100 Women Internet event
Sue Jelley, Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf, Dani Humberstone, Anne Blankson-Hemans and Dr. Linda Smith were invited to Broadcasting House to take part in the 100 Women BBC Edit-a-thon in collaboration with Wikipedia. This event was organised to highlight the very low percentage of notable women from all walks of life who appear on Wikipedia
 
100 Women
 As part of BBC 100 Women 2016 we’re asking the question is the internet sexist? If you’re a woman, you’re 27 times more likely to be abused online. If you’re in the developing world, nearly 25% fewer women than the men around you have access to the Internet. If you are searching on the Internet, the search engine is likely to be designed by men. Only 1 in 3 google staff is a woman.

Guest of Honour Belinda Tong HSWA at a delightful lunch attended by members and their guests.

"I have always enjoyed our SWA lunches, when we have a chance to socialise and get to know each other better. To-day was in a different league! It was lovely to see everyone again and I was touched to know that I was a "guest", thinking that this was because I became an Honorary Member when I left the Council.
