The 4th Annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is happening this weekend at Mairangi Arts Center. Art+Feminism is a global campaign, which intends to boost coverage of women and the arts on Wikipedia and to encourage female editorship. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. This lack of gender diversity has a number of troubling impacts, particularly in relation to how content is skewed. 95bFM reporter Amanda Jane Robinson speaks to the general manager from Mairangi Arts Center, Angela Suh, about the event.
