Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: 2019


Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Wendy Red Star, "Ashkaamne (matrilineal inheritance)," 2019 Call to Action art commission.

In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as women. This lack of inclusive participation has led to an alarming gap of content in the world’s most popular online research tool.

Art+Feminism’s Edit-a-thons and other initiatives make an impact on the gender gap through crucial improvements to gender, feminism and art related subjects on Wikipedia. Since 2014, Art+Feminism edit-a-thons have taken place across the world, creating and improving over 11,000 articles.
