Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

art plus feminism logoArt+Feminism is a rhizomatic campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship.

You can participate in this global movement by attending a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts.

Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a severe gender imbalance: since most editors are men, articles conform to men’s interests and perspectives. In response, diverse women and allies are joining together to celebrate women’s cultural achievements and inspire a new generation of women Wikipedians.
