Wikimedia’s 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.
Let’s 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, refreshments can be purchased from the cafe. The venue is family friendly but please do contact us in advance if you have specific access needs so we can accommodate. 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.
Who should attend: People of all gender identities and expressions. Please ask your fellow attendees for their pronouns of choice!
Please bring your laptop or device, 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.
ALSO: Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the [Safe Space Policy] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/ArtandFeminism/Safespacepolicy)
