Wikipedia's gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation, and many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia. Join us for a day of communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism.
Consider stopping by to say hello even if Wikipedia editing seems intimidating! We will commence celebratory drinks at approximately 17.30.
