NW Arkansas Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation.

An Edit-a-thon is a community organized event that aims to teach folks how to edit, update, and add articles on Wikipedia. These events take place year-round at museums, coffee shops, colleges, and community centers.

Art and Feminism (stylized as Art+Feminism) is an annual worldwide edit-a-thon to add content to Wikipedia about female artists and designers. The project has been described as "a massive multinational effort to correct a persistent bias in Wikipedia, which is disproportionately written by and about men".

Art+Feminism's annual campaign attract thousands of volunteers at hundreds of separate events internationally.
