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.
Let’s change that. Join us in Special Collections and Archives for an all day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on women musicians and composers. We will make the archive of Women's Revolutions Per Minute, an example of a 'small business enterprise' run by and for women as an alternative to the mainstream which had an impact on women's creativity. The archive covers topics such as the socio-cultural position of women in music, power relationships within a cultural industry, and patterns and pathways of developing identity. This session highlights the importance of including gender as a key aspect in all research.
