Only 10% of Wikipedia editors identify as women. The Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is seeking to change that statistic by offering a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others research and teaching session for editing and contributing to Wikipedia. Tutorials will be provided for those who are new to the editing process.
People of all gender identities and expressions, transgender women, cisgender women, and non-binary are invited to join us for this day of communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism.
