An introduction to editing will take place at 11:00 am and experienced editors will be on-site to help with questions or problems. If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia and eager to learn, you can also try this training module.
- Do I need to have extensive knowledge on visual arts? Nope! You will be finding information about the artists through online resources. The important thing is knowing how to choose a reputable source from which to find a good citation.

List of articles to work on
Participants should feel free to add the names of notable women who need a better Wikipedia presence, especially ones whose articles could be improved by citations or the inclusion of research resources. The list is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to provide a starting point for work. If you are not sure where to start, don't hesitate to ask for help! Please add the #ArtAndFeminism tag to all edits on Wikipedia made for this event.
