UC Berkeley Art + Feminism and Race + Justice 2021 Edit-a-Thon
Wikimedia’s race and gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of participation by women and underrepresented groups. This adds up to an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge.
Let’s change that. Art+Feminism is a national campaign improving coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia, and at UC Berkeley we will team up with the American Cultures program’s Race+Justice Edit-thon. Join us on Wednesday, March 10 between 1pm-5pm for a workshop and a communal updating of Wikipedia entries.
