Time: noon - 4 p.m.

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from women. Let’s change that. This will be an afternoon of communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art and feminism. Tutorials will be provided for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support. Childcare requires advanced RSVP. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women. Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.
