On International Women’s Day, celebrate Women's History Month at the Jewish Museum's third Wikipedia Edit-a-thon co-presented with Art + Feminism, a campaign dedicated to improving coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia. All are welcome to learn how to become a Wikipedia editor.
No prior Wikipedia editing experience necessary. To participate in the Edit-a-thon portion of the event, bring a laptop and power cord. Before arriving at the Museum, please create a Wikipedia account. Reference materials will be provided.
This year, the top three participants with the most edits will win prize packs from the Jewish Museum Shop inspired by women artists Rachel Feinstein, Deborah Kass, Judy Chicago, and 20th century art dealer Edith Halpert.
