Time: Saturday, March 23, 2019 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Location: Wexner Center for the Arts
Please join Wikipedia Connection, a student organization at the Ohio State University, and theWexner Center for the Arts Student Engagement Group for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to gender, feminism, and the arts. No Wikipedia editing experience necessary!
Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance; because most editors are men, articles conform to men's interests and perspectives.
In an effort to change this, we are gathering diverse women, people of all gender identities, and allies together to celebrate female and non-binary cultural achievements and openly discuss ongoing challenges caused by structural sexism and discrimination.
Learn more aboutArt+Feminism and their 2019 campaign, Gender + The Non-Binary, at artandfeminism.org and the gender gap atWikiProject Women and Gender Bias on Wikipedia.
If able to, please bring a laptop and power cord along with any ideas for editing new or existing pages! Prior to the event, we recommend that you create a Wikipedia account if you don't already have one. For the editing-adverse, you are welcome to stop by to show your support.
Food (including vegetarian options), refreshments, and Wikipedia goodies will be provided.
