Art+Feminism aims to balance the scales a little more. According to a 2011 Wikipedia Editors Study, just 8.5 percent of Wikipedia editors are women. On Saturday, March 7, the group will host its second annual Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at the Museum of Modern Art, where participants will create and edit articles about female artists, feminist art scholarship and feminist art movements. The event aspires to improve female representation among editors so articles about female artists get more exposure.
55 satellite locations will also be hosting Edit-a-Thons between March 7 and 9 to add and edit hundreds of Wikipedia entries about women. Here's to Art+Feminism's Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at the MoMA and women staying in the picture!
