Help to address the underrepresentation of women in Wikipedia, learn how Wikipedia works and participate in a lively community focused on sharing knowledge. Come to The Menil Collection Library, 1533 Sul Ross, Houston, TX on March 18, 2016 from 12pm to 6pm for communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism.
We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support. We invite people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cis-gender, and gender non-conforming women, to participate.
This event is co-sponsored by Rice University Fondren Library and the Rice Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality. Organized by the Menil Collection’s Digital Asset Manager Consuelo Gutierrez.
