Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effects of this disparity are not: Wikipedia entries reflect the particular experiences, values, and worldviews of its current editors and leave out many others. This situation 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 research resources and consultations, tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, and rewards for participation. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. We’ll have ideas on hand as well. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
