Please join the CU-Boulder University Libraries & the Boulder Feminist Initiative for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts. Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance with men editing more articles than women. In an effort to change this, we’re gathering diverse women and allies together to celebrate women’s cultural achievements and edit Wikipedia articles about women in the arts.
