Art+Feminism is an international campaign that addresses problems with Wikipedia’s representation of women. Less than 13% of Wikipedia contributors are female and articles on notable women’s history in the arts are missing. In an effort to start addressing the gender gap and representation challenge, the Art+Feminism campaign calls for people to participate in international edit-a-thons to create better coverage of women. Anyone can stop by an edit-a-thon to get training and resource to start improving Wikipedia.
