To improve content on women and to encourage female editorship,
Wikipedia came up with the Art & Feminism Campaign. The idea is to
conduct multiple edit-a-thons focused on improving content in
Wikipedia on women and the arts. This usually happens in March (around
women’s day) and in last couple of years the event has been organized
in 17+ countries and 75+ locations.

This year, we plan to host one such edit-a-thon in Chennai (the first
in India) on March 20 (Sunday). The aim is to bring together artists
and Wikipedians to edit Wikipedia articles on women and the arts. The
event will be a collaboration of people with subject matter expertise
and those with familiarity of Wikipedia eco-system to address the
common issue of gender gap.

We invite people of all gender identities and expressions,
particularly trans- and cis – gendered women, to be a part of this
in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and
feminism.
