One of CAGE 2018’s hosts, the Ottawa Art Gallery, helped celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th of this year by holding an event to fill in the entries of Ottawa area women and non-binary artists on Wikipedia. The larger international movement has been ongoing since 2013, when the New York based Art + Feminism campaign kicked off. In 2011, an estimated 10% of Wikipedia entries were written by women.
