February 27 update:
We regret to inform everyone that we have postponed the Wikipedia editathon and panel talk after prime minister Abe urged organisers of cultural events to take measures to minimise the risks of the spread of Covid-19 yesterday.
We hope to bring you this event on March 27 (Fri) in the same format as originally planned.
We will continue to review the situation.

この度、政府からの「新型コロナウイルス感染拡大を防ぐためのイベントの開催自粛要請」 の方針に従い、テンプル大学にて実施を予定していた『アート+フェミニズムエディタソン』並びにトークイベントの延期を決定いたしました。

Art + Feminism - Why Wikipedia?
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.

ウィキペディアにおける特筆性のある人物記事のうち女性は17%程度だけで、ウィキペディアにおけるエディターのうち女性は15%くらいしかいない。 アート+フェミニズム(英語: Art+Feminism)は毎年世界中で開かれている、ウィキペディアに女性芸術家に関する内容を追加していくエディタソンである。「記事内容も執筆者も非常に男性に偏っているウィキペディアにおける根強いバイアスを是正するための、国を越えた大きな努力」だと評されている運動である。

EVERYONE is welcome! People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate. And even if you don't have time to edit, please stop by and show your support.
