Art+Feminism is a global do-it-yourself campaign to combat gender bias and improve the coverage of women, intersectional feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia, the world’s fifth most popular website.
We’re pleased to mark our sixth year in partnership with Art+Feminism by presenting Art+Feminism SoCal, a monthlong, multivenue series of Wikipedia workshops and edit-a-thons presented at museums and art institutions throughout the region in March 2019.

Wikipedia is the world’s fifth most popular website and a go-to source for facts online. Anyone can edit Wikipedia, but not everyone does. Studies show that fewer than 16% of Wikipedia contributors identify as female and 75% are under the age of 30; content is skewed by the lack of representation by women and important stories remain untold. We’re working to change that.
Since 2014, more than 10,000 people have participated in Art+Feminism’s annual worldwide edit-a-thon to close the gender gap, creating and improving more than 33,000 Wikipedia articles related to women and the arts. To learn more, visit artandfeminism.org.
