Sorora e.V / Berlin feminist
Berlin is a feminist, but it is not well reflected in Wikipedia. From Käthe Kollwitz and her influence on access to artistic studies for women to Minna Cauer and her feminist magazine, continuing with the 1920s with the liberation of the LGBTQIA + movement, especially in the areas of Nollendorfplatz and Schöneber, we will review on Wikipedia how different groups of influential women sacrificed their lives to work together to achieve an improvement in female status in society to finally reach the present day where we will reflect feminism through militant artists with migratory backgrounds today.

Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?

Step 1- Three virtual tours / Talks about the sites, references, historical figures, and feminist artists with migrant background in Berlin. The idea is to create a list of key sites and evaluate which is the representation in Wikipedia and put together a list of articles to be published, modified, or translated for steps 2 and 3 that will be shared with the public attending the talks.

Step 2- Photography contest. The public will be invited to photograph the sites from the first step and upload these photos to Wikipedia. Prizes will be awarded.

Step 3- Edit-a-thons. To write, improve or translate the articles that emerged from the investigation of the first stage and the photos of the second stage. In Spanish

How will you let others in your community know about your project (please provide links to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions)? Why are you targeting a specific audience?

We work in partnership with several feminist organizations in Berlin as Ni una Menos Berlin, Xochicuicatl e.V. Berlin, Vierte Welle Festival, Karne Kunst, Sorora e.V

We will promote the activities among our partner organizations and they can share these events in their communities and social media. And we will make an open call to invite new collaborators.

What will you have done at the end of your project? How will you follow-up with people that are involved with your project?

This is a year-long project, which involves 5 events: three talks, a photo contest, and an Edit-a-thon. Each of them is related to the next. At the end of the year and the five events, we will have achieved a greater commitment from the community regarding who writes her own story and the improvement of a series of articles that reflect the history and feminist present in Berlin.

Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:

The first three events will take place virtually. The photo contest does not imply that there are crowds of people. Participants can take their photos in open spaces. Participants will be urged to strictly follow Covid rules. The Edit-a-thon is thought to take place in January 2022. If it is not possible to do it in person, it is possible to do it virtually
