Hack the Canon: Women in Design Wikipedia-edit-a-thon
Did you know that less than 10% of Wikipedia editors are female? This bias is reflected in the lack of articles about notable women, including designers. Help redress the balance, share your knowledge and get editing with like-minded advocates and lovers of design. This day of social wiki-editing is open to anyone curious about Wikipedia. The event will kick-off with a panel discussion 
by designers Zoe Sadokierski, Cathy Lockhart and Olivia Hyde who will contribute to the collective brains trust on the day.
