The event takes place in the Dumke Fine Arts & Architecture Library on Level 2.
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, reference materials, librarians on hand, childcare, and lunch. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. If you do not have a laptop, the library has plenty! We will also provide a curated list of possible entry ideas. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
