Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon: Art + Feminism

Special Event | March 6 | 12-5 p.m. | 405 Moffitt Undergraduate Library

 Library

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. 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 important repository of shared knowledge.

Let’s change that. Drop in 405 Moffitt Undergraduate Library on Tuesday, March 6 from 12noon-5:00pm for an all day communal updating of Wikipedia entries. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, 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. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
