The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon seeks to create meaningful changes to the body of knowledge available about feminism and the arts on Wikipedia.
Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women.

Let’s change that.
