Join us on Thursday March 16 for the 2017 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Art+Feminism is an international campaign to improve coverage of feminism and the arts in Wikipedia. In a 2011 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect is not: content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Art+Feminism invites people of all gender identities and expressions to address this imbalance by participating in communal updating of Wikipedia’s articles.
