|description = Join the American Folklife Center on February 8th for a Edit-A-Thon to expand the online presence of women who documented the world. This event is part of its multi-year initiative to highlight, explore, and celebrate the contributions of women as ethnographic fieldworkers and scholars and call attention to the instrumental role of women in establishing many of the seminal collections that now enrich the AFC archive and ethnographic archives throughout the world. During the Edit-A-Thon, we plan to add and/or expand entries for approximately 25-30 women, both historic and contemporary, who documented traditional culture. We will focus of those whose collections are now housed in the AFC archive. Activities will be centered at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, but off-site participation is encouraged. AFC staff will be on hand to assist on-site and off-site researchers and provide archival materials.

While Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world, notching up more than 32 million views a day, less than 18% of its English-language biographies are about women. So in honor of Ada Lovelace—and her contributions to mathematics and computing—we'll work to add more entries to Wikipedia and give you the tools to keep making the Internet less sexist after our Wiki-thon. All you have to do is come armed with a laptop or tablet!

|description = In 2015, the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art conducted an assessment of its collection and ascertained that only 11% of the named artists in its collection self-identified as women. As part of its Women’s Initiative, this number has been increased to 22%. But did you know that only 18% of articles on English-language Wikipedia are about women? Help to change that by joining us for the National Museum of African Art’s African Women Artists Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. We will work together to increase the presence of African women artists on Wikipedia by improving existing articles and creating new ones. This event includes a curator-led tour of the exhibition, I Am… Contemporary Women Artists of Africa.
  
This Wikipedia Edit-a-thon accompanies the exhibition, In the Library: The Evans-Tibbs Archive of African American Art, which showcases the life and work of Thurlow Evans Tibbs Jr., an accomplished art appraiser, broker, collector, and dealer, as well as the founder and director of his eponymous art gallery in Washington, DC. Tibbs is best known for his donation to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, now an important part of the National Gallery’s holdings by African American artists. To support his research, Tibbs amassed approximately more than a thousand reference files comprising more than seventy boxes of material documenting art of the African diaspora. Tibbs opened up his reference collection, now commonly known as the Evans-Tibbs Archive, to artists, students, and scholars. The archive includes correspondence, exhibition pamphlets, gallery records, photographs, and other ephemera that illustrate the history of the Tibbs family, The Evans-Tibbs Collection, and African American art.

No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. Editing training will be provided by Wikimedia DC. Museum curators and librarians will be on-hand to provide expertise and source material.

|description = Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

|description = The National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., will participate in Art+Feminism 2020 with the goal of improving representation of women and female-identifying artists on Wikipedia as well as training more women to be editors. The focus of our efforts will be women sculptors.  
  
Let’s change that. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, as well as reference materials, coffee and lunch. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.

This workshop is presented by Wikimedia DC, the DC region's official Wikipedia affiliate, but is open to all regardless of location.
  
During this training, attendees will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by updating articles related to the history of women's suffrage in the United States in connection with the Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery. Votes for Women examines the women and organizations often overlooked in the American women’s suffrage movement and there will be resources on hand to add as citations. Beginners are very welcome and a range of Wikipedia editing techniques will be taught, with Wikimedia DC members on hand to help!
+
Wikimedia DC will continue to offer remote workshops over the course of the next few weeks. Like our regular in-person events, these may be themed or presented in conjunction with area museums, agencies, institutions, and organizations.
  
This is the first edit-a-thon in a series planned in conjunction with the Smithsonian American Women's Initiative, a multiyear undertaking to document, research, collect, display, and share the history of women in the United States.
+
Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a remote training session for your staff or constituents.
