Know My Name / Art+Feminism / Women in Red (2020-2021)

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

 

As part of Wikimedia Australia, I'm coordinating a partnership with the National Gallery of Australia's Know My Name initiative which aims to enhance understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.

 

Each year on the weekend of International Women's Day, Wikipedia edit-a-thons are growing around Australia to significantly increase the representation of women creators, scientists and leaders on the world's biggest information platform.
