Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Thu, Mar 19, 2020 | 11:00 am

CANCELED

This event has been canceled.

Wikipedia's gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female; more recent research points to 16% globally and 22% in the US. The data relative to trans and non-binary editors is basically non-existent. That's a big problem. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: gaps in participation create gaps in content.

Let's change that. Join us for the seventh annual (and our fifth!) Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, where we’ll update Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, feminism, and the arts.

SCHEDULE

Communal editing: 11:00 am –2:00 pm 

Training session: 11:30 am –12:30 pm 

Drop in at any time!

 

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments, and invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate.

 

Registration is encouraged.
