Feminism and Folklore South Asia

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Welcome to Feminism and Folklore South Asia!

Feminism and Folklore South Asia previously called Wiki Loves Women South Asia is an international campaign organized at Wikipedia annually in the month of February and March to document folk cultures and women in folklore in different regions of the world on Wikipedia. This project is the Wikipedia edition of the photography campaign Wiki Loves Folklore (WLF) that is organized on Wikimedia Commons to document folklore traditions around the world.

The basic aim of the competition is to collect articles on human cultural diversity in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. This year we focus on folk culture around the globe, with a particular attention to closing the gender gap, as we are partnering with other affiliates and groups across the world.

Since 2019, we have been organizing a multilingual Wikipedia contest and chosen to place the project on meta allowing inter wikis, inter-lingual and inter-project cooperation, to foster the true aspect of our global wikilove movement. The campaign is targeted at protecting the world’s intangible cultural heritage and documentation of women biographies about women in folklore.
