Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. 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 female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

Let’s change that! Join us at the Art+Feminism+Tacos Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2015 at the Oracle Club in Long Island City on Saturday, June 13th, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. Bring your laptop, power cord, and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. Women, non-gender binary, and all allies welcomed.
