Did you know that according to a 2011 Wikipedia Editors Survey, less than 10% of Wikipedia editors identify as female?
This under-representation of women editors translates to a dearth of Wikipedia content by and about women. To help counter this, on Thursday, July 27, PLG London hosted what we hope was the first of many Art+Feminism themed Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons at FIMS.
Over the course of the afternoon, we trained new editors and collaborated on 10 Wikipedia stub articles about Canadian women artists and their work!
Thank you to all of our participants, and please stay tuned for our next Edit-a-Thon.
