Revision as of 05:41, 24 January 2020

Just 18 per cent of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to female artists and creators, that number is even lower.

Wikimedia Australia is partnering with the National Gallery of Australia on its Know My Name initiative which aims to enhance the understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.

This March, we are co-hosting a series of edit-a-thons around Australia on the weekend of International Women's day. Our goal is to create 100 new pages about female creators, also as part of Art+Feminism.
