Art + Feminism

Art + Feminism

Art+Feminism is a DIY campaign to improve coverage on feminism and the arts on Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect is not: content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Art+Feminism invites people of all gender identities and expressions to address this imbalance by participating in communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries. Founded in 2014 by Siân Evans, Jacqueline Mabey, Michael Mandiberg and Laurel Ptak, over 4,600 people at more than 280 events around the world have participated in Art+Feminism’s Edit-a-thons, resulting in the creation and improvement of more than 4,600 articles on Wikipedia.
