Subject: [FSFTN] Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon @ Chennai
To: mailingl...@fsftn.org


To improve content on women and to encourage female editorship, Wikipedia
came up with the '*Art & Feminism Campaign*
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/ArtAndFeminism/About>'. The
idea is to conduct multiple edit-a-thons focused on improving content in
Wikipedia on women and the arts. This usually happens in March (around
women's day) and in last couple of years the event has been organized in
17+ countries and 75+ locations.

This year, we plan to host one such edit-a-thon in Chennai (the first in
India) on March 20 (Sunday). The aim is to bring together artists and
Wikipedians to edit Wikipedia articles on women and the arts. The event
will be a collaboration of people with subject matter expertise and those
with familiarity of Wikipedia eco-system to address the common issue of
gender gap.

The details about the event can be found here - Art And Feminism 2016 -
Chennai Meetup

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly
trans- and cis - gendered women, to be a part of this in-person, communal
updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism.
