Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Editathon


Why a feminist editathon?

From Wikipedia's page on its systemic bias:
The Wikipedia project strives for a neutral point of view in its coverage of subjects, but it is inhibited by systemic bias that perpetuates a bias against underrepresented cultures, topics and groups within society....[resulting] in an imbalanced coverage of subjects on Wikipedia.

With its global reach and circulation, Wikipedia is one of the current social experiments where people who care about making knowledge accessible to everyone can help disseminate information that is presently available only to a minute part of the world. The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies committee at LaGuardia Community College would like you to become part of the Wikipedians who "mind the gap," by creating and expanding articles focusing on notable women and gender issues.
