  1. 1. Weinvitepeopleofall genderidentitiesexpressions transgendercisgender andgendernonconforming women Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. Librarians will provide training and reference sources to assist contributors in adding and improving the Wikipedia entries for women in history. Please bring your own laptops or check one out on the Library first floor. Light refreshments will be provided. In partnership with the Cross Cultural Gender Center. Free event. Open to the public.
