Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10 percent of its contributors were women. 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 representation from women.
Let’s change that.
Join us at the ICP School for an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism, culling from ICP’s collections and alumni. We will provide 45-minute tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian at 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM, as well as 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. We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.
Please create a Wikipedia account before the event.
Free with registration. Although we request participants select a time slot when registering for the event, you are welcome to arrive throughout the day.
