* Art+Feminism is a campaign to improve coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. Last year, on February 1st, 2014, approximately 600 participants convened in 31 locations in 6 countries to edit Wikipedia articles on women and the arts as part of Art+Feminism’s annual Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon. This year, Gleeson Library is participating, along with many other international libraries, as a satellite location.
