Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Home

This guide is a companion to the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at Spalding University on March 28th, 2018.

About Art + Feminism

Art + Feminism is a national campaign to improve coverage of cis and transgender women, feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. Wikipedia is the largest and most popular general reference work on the internet with more than 40 million articles in more than 250 different languages. Less than 10% of editors on Wikipedia are women. The fact is when we don’t tell our stories or participate in the ways our history is preserved, it gets erased. Gaps in the coverage of knowledge about women, gender, feminism, and the arts on one of the most visited websites in the world is a big problem and we need your help to fix it.
