Feminist Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon
Free, includes Museum admission! Join us for a coffee-fueled Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that aims to both expand the historical records of feminist activism on Wikipedia and combat the gender gap in its editing -- less than 10% of Wikipedia editors are women.
Drop in any time between 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm to help create and refine Wikipedia pages associated with the women activists spotlighted in our current exhibition Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics (on view through August 5, 2018). A training session will be offered at 3:00 pm but help will be available throughout the event.
Participants are required to bring their own laptops and chargers but Wi-Fi access and reference materials will be provided.
Refreshments and Museum admission included.
