Attend the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on March 12

A 2011 survey by the Wikimedia Foundation found that fewer than 10% of Wikipedia contributors identified as women. In 2014, Art + Feminism was launched by librarians, artists, curators, and educators to correct the gender imbalance in Wikipedia contributors and content. Since then, the project has grown worldwide.
