Please join Wikipedia Connection, a student organization at the Ohio State University, 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 and Gender Bias on Wikipedia, and learn more about the Art+Feminism campaign on their page.
Food, refreshments, and raffle prizes will be available. Please take a few seconds to RSVP, either here or by signing your name in the section below. Anyone with an interest in the cause and editing is welcome to join - no prior editing experience is required! Please be aware of our Safe Space Policy.

Women are particularly encouraged to attend, along with anyone with a background, focus, or interest in art (painting, writing, culture, etc.).
