Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Tuesday 11 February 2014

Split Britches, the American performance troupe co-founded by Lois Weaver, was among 101 female artists and performance groups added to Wikipedia in an international drive to correct Wikipedia's persistent bias.

The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon aimed to enhance Wikipedia's coverage of significant female artists and performers. On the 1st of February 2014, around 600 volunteers helped to add new pages profiling the work of painters,sculptors, photographers, writers, directors, and actors. 

The ARTnews site provides more details about the Edit-a-thon and profiles several of the performers involved, including Split Britches.
