Art + Feminism Wikipedia Editathon

Why are we here? We’re here because less than 10% of editors on Wikipedia are women.

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. 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.

Join Art History and Art Program professors Deanna MacDonald, Mayu Tsuruya and Louise Rouse for a day of action.
