Why Edit?

Gender Bias is a well documented issue on Wikipedia, both in content and editorship.

The Art+Feminism organization is a leader in the online activist community that aims to address representation issues in the arts related to gender, race, LGBTQ, and more in the public knowledge realm.

Please watch the video below to learn more about the gender gap in Wikipedia.
