    ABOUT:
    The Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is a response to the gender gap in content and participation on Wikipedia. It's estimated that LESS THAN 10 PER CENT OF WIKIPEDIA EDITORS IDENTIFY AS FEMALE.

    Annual Art + Feminism events around the world are addressing these gaps by inviting women and participants of all gender identities and expressions to gather for communal updating of Wikipedia entries on art and feminism. www.artandfeminism.org

    Session runs from 12-4pm (you can stay all day, or drop in for shorter lengths of time as well)
