Monthly updates[edit]

Please prepare a brief project update each month, in a format of your choice, to share progress and learnings with the community along the way. Submit the link below as you complete each update.

All are events are tracked on the dashboard and most of them can be seen on the general campaign les sans pagEs:, apart from the group in Nantes and Grenoble who do not work with the dashboard. Some groups have active page on Wikipedia where the activity is documented regurlarly.

  • In Grenoble we have participants to the local cabale de la Noix (Wikimedia France local group) and they do not have an active page listing their activities specifically for the gender gap.

All events are listed in the sans pages calendar here very regurlarly:, and we also try to put them on meta here: Events calendar

Therefore it was very hard to ask participantes to again fill out this page on meta in English again after asking them to fill out the francophone part. Therefore we will post the links to the dashboards instead of writing monthly reports.

January 2018[edit]


Link to event page We held our first meetup in the la Gaîté Lyrique public library, on the theme "Women in Sports" with a special focus on the 2018 Olympics. Our event had 25 in-person attendees, and together we created 19 articles, amounting to more than 271k words added on Wikipedia. These 19 articles included 7 articles by first-timers on Wikipedia. The event benificiated from a press coverage by Slate. One attendant decided to organize a Wikisource workshop before the next event in february, hosted by Wikimedia France.

We are planning to send representants to Montpellier in March, to support an university project that could turn into a recurrent les sans pagEs event later in 2018. We have requested one Wikimania grant: if denied, we would like to use our travel funds (as specified in the grant request) to pay for the representant's plane ticket as specified on the grant discussion page.

March 2018[edit]


March is always a busy month for women-oriented projects. On March 8th, we organised an edit-a-thon at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. We had 254 attendees, who created 110 articles in 5 languages, and added a total of 388k words in the span of four hours. This wwas by far our largest event, and it was very successful: we are planning to hold it again on International Women's Day in 2019. We had the support of Wikimedia France, the Swedish, Canadian, European union, Icelandic and Ukrainian Embassies to UNESCO, UNESCO itself, INA, and the Chanel Foundation.

On March 17th, we had one Parisian organiser go to Montpellier for a local edit-a-thon that wasn't part of the usual les sans pagEs groups. This workshop had 23 participants and may be the beginning of a real local group in Montpellier next year.

On March 24th, we hosted the usual workshop at the Gaité Lyrique with the theme Biologists and Ecologists. It was smaller than usual at 19 contributors, as our communication efforts had focused on the UNESCO event instead of that one, but the results were impressive with 17 new articles and 35 edited articles, amounting to 15.7k words added to Wikimedia projects. We were happy to welcome attendees who returned after coming to the January or February event, and had 12 newcomers who created their account on the spot.

We participated to the francophone Wikiconvention 5-6 October 2018 by giving a workshop on how to organize an Art+Feminism event and had a planned public conference with Mckenzie Mac. Unfortunately she was not able to come but we managed to have a skype conference. A GLAM contributor in Montpellier expressed interest to host an Art+Feminism event in the future. We paid special attention to represent Africa in the conference, having african contributors from Tunisia and Cote d'Ivoire to explain what they were doing within Art+Feminism. It was the occasion to meet participants of the sans pages project from Paris, Grenoble, Geneva, Marseille and Montpellier. During the convention, Sukkoria offered a knitted octopus with a witch hat and we decided to use it as a mascot or les sans pages to allow its participation to the cuteness association.

  • dashboard report here
  • Two newcomers to this session thanks to a Facebook event created for this session. Magatim and Lezecotto announced that they will report the planned event in November to spring du to time constraints. they asked if it was possible to ask the WMF for a grant extension to next year. They feel they need another training week end to promote local interest in the project and felt a little demotivated after participating to the WAF event in Bern in June, which is why they explicitely asked Nattes à chat to come back for this session. They want to link this work with the work done by Via Mullieris, an association active i promoting the visibility of women's history in the canton of Waliis.

Editors were mostly women (9 out of 11), with a good numbers of newcomers, but also women coming for the 2nd or 3rd time to our workshops. We also had a two men (among which one experimented wikimedian), and several members of an association working for the digital literacy of elder people (so they share what they learn with their senior students afterwards).



Opsylac from Grenoble was able to join an editathon in Paris.

Is your final report due but you need more time?

Extension request[edit]

New end date[edit]

midpoint: November 10 final July 2019 (if the extension date of the project is accepted for June 2019) new location : Méditerranée


We would need an

-1- an extension for the mid point report. We have been very busy and we are all now working full time next to this project. We have kept the operational side of the project going but are late in delivering the mid point report.

Although we are late we have kept regular records of what has been done through dashboards and regular reports on the project page seeés.

All events are listed here on the calendaar:

(Nearly) All activity is tracked through a global campaign on the dashboard see :

-2- the authorization to use funding for a new location les sans pagEs Méditerrannée which has been set up and is meeting now monthly in Urban Prod in Marseille. A gender gap section of contributors from Montpellier also joined (see their project page here:éditerranée).

-3- an extension of the project

Sion has decided to have the planned big event in Spring rather than november to be able to have outdoor excursions and more time to prepare. The group is still small (unlike Paris Sion is a very small town) and was planning to do a WAF event, but after the first meeting in June with WAF decided to rather do something on their own at their local level. They also feel they need more training before oragnizing a big event and wish to use the rest of the funding next year.

Grenoble has been involved in the francophone Wikiconvention in which les sans pages participated, and could not devote more volunteer time to something else but has held two events allready.

Nantes is functionning it seems but asking for funding of things that were not initially budgeted and is finding it hard to communicate and report in English.

Paris is continuing and has allready planned events until June 2019 at the Gaité Lyrique.

We would like to request an extension of the funding period in order to finish the project fully until the end of June 2019 if possible.

Extension approved: New end date June 30, 2019[edit]

Extension is approved for a new end date of June 30, 2019 and a midpoint of November 10, 2018. Marti (WMF) (talk) 18:26, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Your new final report due date is now 29 July 2019. Thank you -- JTud (WMF), Grants Administrator (talk) 16:21, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

New final report due date[edit]

31 October 2019


As you might have noticed we are late for the final report. This is due to the fact that : 1 - we have engaged an accountant in april 2019 who needs time to understand in order to make the reporting, and that I have had a knee accident and some health issues in july - august (I can provide a medical certificate). Would it be possible to extend the date to 31rst of october? Sorry for the delay. Nattes à chat (talk) 09:25, 11 September 2019 (UTC)


I am sorry to hear about your accident and health issues, Nattes à chat. Please take care. I hope that your accountant is working out well for les sans pagEs. I have noted your new final report due date as 31 October 2019. Kindly email projectgrants(_AT_) to let us know your report has been submitted and to submit your grant receipts and expense documentation. Best -- JTud (WMF), Grants Administrator (talk) 16:52, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
