We have a gender gap too large that inevitably impacts on the contents of the articles of Wikipedia. One of our objectives is to attract more women collaborators to guarantee the diversity and the quality of the contents. Our goal is to increase the presence of Latin American women in Wikipedia. We want to recruit more new female editors and to add content about notable Latin American women.

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?

We are planning to do one editathon that spreads for two days focused on Latin American Women.

2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

We have our blogs, and the web of Un Dia Una Arquitecta that has more than one million visits for the dissemination of the event, the Facebook page of Un Dia Una Arquitecta has more than 20000 likes, we also have some mailing list to find experienced editors to volunteer at the editathons. We will place notifications in the following locations:

3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?

We have a strong experience organizing editathons, some of them were:

We wrote about those projects in several sites, for example:

4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

People will bring their own laptops or netbooks. We will request a temporary lift of IP cap for editathon to create several new accounts.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

We already have done several editathons and we have the email of the participants. Participants continue to work together from the Facebook working group and the mailing lists. We will also follow the work through the Wikipedia page of the event, where the progress made after the meeting will be published. We will send messages to all new editors after the event. We always monitor the work done by new editors. We answer questions and offer feedback on the Wikipedia talk page in the Wikiproyecto Mujeres. We already have a Facebook group for editathon participants to talk.

6. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

We are planning a guided visit to notable buildings and monuments designed by women to take photos to upload to Wikimedia Commons as part of the editathon. You can see a video that we have already done:



How will you know if the project is successful and you've met your goals?
