Did you know that fewer than 10 percent of Wikipedia editors are women?
In honor of International Women’s Day in March 2018, the Public Knowledge Library hosted SFMOMA’s first-ever Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in collaboration with Art+Feminism, an international project about “women and the ways we talk about them and write about them on the Internet.”
Attendees included SFMOMA staff from four departments, in addition to Wikipedia staff and several members of the public. The results of this session included five brand-new articles, 37 articles edited, and nearly 9,000 words added in total.
Artists with new or updated pages include Jean Conner, Janet Delaney, Sharon Hayes, Claudy Jongstra, Rinko Kawauchi, Yolanda Lopez, and many others.
