Just for the Record: Gender Redirect Wikipedia workshop addressing the Gender Bias
At 27 February 2016, the second project day of the project Just For The Record was organised.
||Just For The Record organizes its second event, Gender Redirect, a day bringing attention to gender representations in language constructions. Gender Redirect takes over the threads developed in the previous event, heroine, and continues its analysis of the process of Wikipedia editing, with its specific functions such as ‘view history’ and ‘talk page’, analysis tools like metrics and operations like redirection and disambiguation - to investigate the possibilities and challenges of gender-neutral writing.
To address these issues Just for the record organises a series of events in Brussels starting in January 2016. The topic of the second event was Gender Redirect. During the event, these observations were taken as the point of departure for lectures and discussions, and intervention—the day includes a crash course in Wikipedia editing. The event included a presentation by Femke Snelting and a performance by Frau Picha.
The next event will be organised on 8 March 2016 for the International Women’s Day. The previous event was on 15 January 2016.
