Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. When a diverse community isn't represented in the writing and editing on the tenth-most-visited site in the world, information gets skewed and misrepresented.
Let's change this.
Art+Feminism is a do-it-yourself and do-it-with-others campaign to improve coverage of cis and trans women, non-binary folks, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia.
Howard-Tilton Memorial Library and Newcomb Institute will host two events for this year's A+F: a new-to-Wikipedia editors' training session on March 6th, 11 am to 12 pm; and an edit-a-thon on March 11th, 11 am to 1 pm. Both events will be held in H-TML Room 308.
Staff from Newcomb Institute and H-TML will be there to help and will provide reference materials from our zine and tarot collections, in connection to this year's A+F theme, "Art+Activism," and the current zine exhibit from H-TML Special Collections, "Where We Stand." We'll have free pizza, too! Computers are provided but feel free to bring a laptop along with your ideas for articles. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by and show your support.
Please create a Wikipedia account before the edit-a-thon. You can do that here: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:CreateAccount&returnt...

Please register ahead of the event (but walk-ins are welcome): https://library.tulane.edu/events

Dr. Rachel R. Hardeman is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Health Policy & Management, University of Minnesota, School of Public Health. She is a reproductive health equity researcher whose research uses the frameworks of critical race theory and reproductive justice to inform her equity-centered work at the intersections of health services research and population health. She seeks to improve outcomes for Black birthing people and their babies. Her work also examines the potential mental health impacts for Black birthing people when living in a community that has experienced the killing of an unarmed Black person by police.

Her overarching goal is to contribute to a body of knowledge that links structural racism to health in a tangible way, identifies opportunities for intervention, and dismantles the systems, structures, and institutions that allow inequities to persist.
