Happy International Women’s Day! Today (and every day!) let’s celebrate our community of activists who are committed to closing information gaps related to gender, feminism, and the arts, on Wikipedia (and beyond).
Below are some March highlights. Many events have a virtual component so you can join wherever you are! See a full list of events here.

It’s true that many Art+Feminism events happen during the month of March around International Women’s Day, but we celebrate events year-round! If you will be joining us this year, we want to reiterate our commitment to community care and ask that you do the same. If you’d like to join the campaign and organize an edit-a-thon, panel, or meetup, please contact us. We’ll connect you with a regional ambassador who can help you with your event planning.
