In place of our annual Wikipedia Edit-a-thon event honoring Women’s History Month, we have created this digital space for people of all gender expressions to help close the information gap about gender, feminism, and the arts on the internet. Here, you’ll find resources to help you get started editing Wikipedia articles at your own pace. Let’s create a more inclusive presence on Wikipedia for female and nonbinary identifying artists!
