An ArtAndFeminism event

International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8th in many countries, and there are edit-a-thons planned around the world on this day. Wikipedians in the San Francisco Bay Area are invited to an edit-a-thon at the Wikimedia Foundation on Sunday, March 8th. Come join the fun and be a part of something amazing, whether you're a new or experienced editor, and feel free to bring a friend! If you don't know anything about how to edit Wikipedia, other editors will teach you, and we will all learn more together. Remote participants are also welcome.

Please also consider attending the San Francisco ArtandFeminism edit-a-thon on Saturday, March 7th, which is part of the global Art+Feminism editing weekend.
