Wikipedia

Wikipedia is used as a resource by millions, but compared to the total amount of its users the site has a small number of mostly male contributors. A 2010 study by the Wikimedia Foundation found that at the time only 13% of its contributors were women. RIT Libraries Women on Wikipedia-edit-a-thon events are geared to change that imbalance.

Wikipedia has a glaring gender disparity when it comes to editors. Less than 10% of them are women. In an effort to improve coverage of gender, feminism, and the arts on Wikipedia, Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center has held “Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon” workshops this year to teach local residents how they can contribute to the site.
