Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thons – Washington D.C. – 7 events over 5 weeks!

The year 2020 marks a turning point in history for American women, and to celebrate the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, Washington D.C. cultural organizations have joined together to host a series of Wikipedia edit-a-thons during Women’s History month. This coordinated series of events is in conjunction with the Art+Feminism campaign to address gender gaps in content and participation on the encyclopedia, especially related to art and artists.

Join DC arts and cultural organizations for in-depth or behind-the-scenes tours of relevant exhibitions, the chance to learn more about women artists from around the world, and the opportunity to help tip the gender imbalance!
