Wikipedia's gender trouble is well documented. In a 2010 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia.

This event continues the work of previous Art + Feminism Edit-a-Thons across the world, which added more than 100 women artists to Wikipedia. With access to OCAD U library’s books and article databases, you are invited to help continue adding and editing entries.
