Join us for an Art+Feminism Wiki Edit-a-thon at InterAccess. Create a Wikipedia account and bring your laptop.

Event information is available here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Toronto/ArtAndFeminism_September_23,_2015

This event is a follow up to the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the AGO on September 16, 2015.

Art+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women & the arts on Wikipedia, & to encourage female editorship.

Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. 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 female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We invite people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly trans- and cisgendered women, to address this absence by organizing and participating in in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism.
