Project Goal[edit]

Choose one or more of the following goals. You can add or delete goals as needed.

The gender gap is still visible in some wiki projects, the reason why we have the WikiGap Campaign, A+F campaign, VisibleWikiWomen, and SheSaid. This is a good start for a growing Wikiproject especially that it is in its initial stage. The earlier we supplement it with contents choosing women and feminism as subjects, the less we will rush to work with it in the future. 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.

Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:

1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

This project aims to conduct a series of edit-a-thons both online and offline. Focus will be on improving contents about Filipino women on Wikiquote, Wikisambit and Wikikawikaan.

2. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

The organizer will inform the community through the different community portals of the different Philippine language-based wiki projects. This project will also be advertise to the different social media channels of Wikimedia volunteers from the Philippines.
Posted in the community portals of the following wikiprojects:
Wikimedia Incubator
Central Bikol Wiktionary
Tagalog Wikipedia

3. How will you let participants know about the edit-a-thon? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

Possible participants will be invited through community portals and emails.

Yes. Volunteers from previous trainings on other on-wiki projects will be invited. All interested participants will be asked to bring their own laptops or mobile phones during the offline meet-up. Additional laptop will be rented as support to the volunteers without devices. A place with Internet will be secured for the meet-ups.
