Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Minneapolis Central Library
300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401
Why we Edit
Wikimediaís gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.
Letís change that. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian and resources to support your research. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
