Project Goal of the SheSaid Philippines[edit]

This initiative is related to the Wiki Loves Women project. Wiki Loves Women contributes toward the UN’s SDG 5 Gender Equity: achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls. Within the 2030 Wikimedia Strategy, the Wiki Loves Women project works toward resolving several recommendations, mainly Investing in Skills and Leadership Development. One of the recurring initiatives of Wiki Loves Women is the #SheSaid drive. As a group, we wanted to participate in this mission and inculcate in our members the need for equal gender representation, especially in Wikimedia projects. We aim to increase their visibility by contributing quotations from notable women. Locally, we wanted to create a collection of quotes from prominent women in history, politics, literature, and other areas, which will directly benefit Filipino history and languages and those who endeavor to study them.

As a support to bridge the gap in gender representation, this project will focus on:

  1. Increasing and/or improving content on notable Filipino women on different Wikiquote platforms;
  2. Promoting the Philippine language Wikiquote platforms under incubation (Wikisambit, Wikikawikaan) using fair gender representation;
  3. Recruitment of new editors and improving skills of existing editors through a series of edit-a-thons;
  4. Foster an open culture through meet-ups and include more women in the community of volunteers.
