Bring your laptop and learn to create and edit Wikipedia articles at this annual worldwide edit-a-thon to close the gender gap. This Wikipedia edit-a-thon focuses on women in media and the arts. Beginners are welcome, and people of all gender expressions and identities are encouraged to attend.
Training sessions for beginners will take place at noon and 3 p.m.—all you need is a laptop. We recommend you create a Wikipedia account before attending the event to get a head start.
Art + Feminism is a global do-it-yourself campaign to combat gender bias and improve the coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. Anyone can edit Wikipedia but not everyone does: only about 15% of Wikipedia editors are female, and this imbalance is reflected in the content.
