Only 10% of Wikipedia contributors identify as female, which has led to an under representation of women-focused pages. The University of Waterloo Library is hosting an edit-a-thon as part of the Art+Feminism movement aimed at disrupting this trend.
Space is limited - register now!
First-time and experienced editors welcome! Basic Wikipedia editing skills are required, though hands-on assistance (and encouragement!) will be available on-site. See the event page or Wikipedia help page for online training resources and assistance. New editors are encouraged to create an account ahead of the event.
A limited number of computers will be available on-site, as well as workspace for personal laptops. You are also welcome to participate from home by simply adding your name to the attendees section.
