On March 3rd, people of all gender identities were warmly welcomed into the UCLA Arts Library to deconstruct this gender bias and contribute to the fair representation of women at the Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon. This event was held by voidLab, a feminist collective that meets weekly at UCLA to discuss intersectional feminism and organize events and exhibitions. This event focused on writing articles about female artists to help increase their representation within Wikipedia.
“When I hear the word feminist, I think of someone who—in addition to what their daily roles might be—go out of their way to champion women,” Andi explains. “That is a beautiful thing.”
