Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Art+Feminism: Women in the Arts Workshop
International Women’s Day

Celebrate International Women’s Day and help us improve Wikipedia articles about women artists.

In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, NMWA is organizing the third annual edit-a-thon focused on improving Wikipedia entries related to notable women artists and art world figures.

This event is part of the larger Art+Feminism global initiative to help improve Wikipedia’s gender imbalance. A 2010 Wikimedia survey found that less than 13% of its contributors are women. The lack of female participation has contributed to the absence of notable women on Wikipedia.

If you cannot attend in person, participate remotely and record your articles in the results section or on the Art+Feminism tumblr. Use the hashtag #ArtAndFeminism as you tweet about the event!
