Women make up only 17% of the biographies on Wikipedia. Female editors are even rarer, making up under 15% of Wikipedia’s regular editing community. Art + Feminism aims to tackle this by contributing and amending meaningful information on female artists, hosting events around the world creating and editing Wikipedia pages. This event is an opportunity to delve deep into the RA Library and Collection and explore the vast collection of books, press cuttings, reviews of exhibitions and works sold at auction. You’ll also have access to the Grove Dictionary of Art.

Please bring a laptop if you have one, as only a small number of laptops will be available on the day.

List of articles to edit[edit]

This is a list of articles that would benefit from edits and expansion during the edit-a-thon, but you are welcome to work on anything you like.
Please note: This is a crowdsourced list. You can help us by adding to it!
