Event information[edit]

"Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge." -Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon NYC Organizers

So let's come together to work on this. Please join us at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University on February 26, 2016. There are two events happening in Pittsburgh. Our particular focus at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry will be adding and enhancing articles on women working at the intersection of art and technology (though no one will be discouraged from researching women working in other art-related fields).

At the event we will provide introductory tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments. Tutorials will start at 12:00 and 4:00 (and may occur again in between if necessary). Please bring along ideas for Wikipedia entries that need to be added or updated as well as your laptop and power cord. If you aren't interested in making articles, come collaborate on the research end. People of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cisgender, and gender nonconforming women, are invited to participate. Please ask your fellow attendees for their pronouns of choice!
