Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Art and Feminism

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 - 11:00am to 4:00pm
Zoom
Rod Library, 1227 W 27th St, Cedar Falls, IA 50614, USA

Art and FeminismJoin us via Zoom for the edit-a-thon, Art and Feminism, an annual worldwide edit-a-thon to add content to Wikipedia about female artists. The project, founded by Siân Evans, Jacqueline Mabey, Michael Mandiberg, and Laurel Ptak, has been described as "a massive multinational effort to correct a persistent bias in Wikipedia, which is disproportionately written by and about men." One reason for establishing the Art+Feminism project included responding to negative media coverage about Wikipedia's cataloging system. The project continues to fill content gaps in Wikipedia and increase the number of female contributors. Only about 17 percent of biographies on Wikipedia are about women and only about 15 percent of Wikipedia editors are female.

We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian and people of all gender identities and expressions, races and ethnicities are invited to participate.
