Wikipedia:Meetup/Corning/Corning ArtAndFeminism 2018
Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% 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!
We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.

List of articles to edit
Remember, a new Wikipedia article should be backed up by at least 5 reliable sources. Please also consider notability when creating new articles.
WikiProject: Women in Red has created a guide, Simple Rules for Creating Women's Biographies, that may be useful when starting a new article. The biographies for living persons policy and Guide to Writing Wikipedia Pages for Notable Women in Computing (applicable to any biography) are two other guides with good advice.
