Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Please join us for an editing session to improve representation of women artists on Wikipedia (particularly Canadian, First Nations & OCAD U).

~Wikipedia's gender trouble is well documented. In a 2010 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia.~

We will continue the work of previous Art + Feminism Edit-a-Thons at OCAD U and across the world, which have added more than 100 women artists to Wikipedia ( With access to OCAD U library’s books and article databases, you are invited to help continue adding and editing entries.
