Please join us for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts. Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance: since most editors are men, articles conform to men's interests and perspectives. In an effort to change this, we are gathering diverse women and allies together to celebrate women's cultural achievements and discuss openly ongoing challenges caused by structural sexism. (Learn more about the gender gap at WikiProject Women. More about Art+Feminism campaign on their page.)

This event is hosted by MIT Libraries and is open to the public.
