More women on Wikipedia

Date of news: 21 June 2021

Students from Radboud University have written biographies of female artists on Wikipedia. They have done this for their Dutch course 'Van Rembrandts snor tot het bed van Tracey Emin: gender en viduele cultuur (1500-2000)'. They wrote about female artists such as Catherina Ykens, Jacoba van Veen, Elisa de Gamond and Jeanne Mammen.

This is something to be proud of because there are only three languages on Wikipedia (out of the 143 available) in which 50% of biographies are about women.
