In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and given this situation and being in one of the longest quarantines, we worked online and remotely. We identify, prioritize and work on gender gap. We continue to build and strengthen safe spaces to promote the participation of women in Wikimedia's projects. Several edith athons and workshops that we had planned to organize had to be suspended. We were working in collaboration with other user groups and chapter of the region. We supported women newcomers.
We invite Wikipedia editors to focus on collecting and sharing quality images under free or public domain licenses through Wikimedia Commons, so that they can be used to illustrate Wikipedia articles. This year we arrived to 7.86K number of Wkimedia Commons uploaded since we began to work.
We focus on working with underrepresented groups on Wikimedia, that's why Ennegreciendo Wikidata 2020 project (Blackening Wikidata).
Since we were unable to hold in-person editathons this year, we focused on helping new users and teaching them how to edit.
During October 7 we perform the Conversatorio. América Latina, Wikipedia y las Editatones para eliminar las brechas de género: Si las brechas se eliminan, los desacuerdos se zanjan. The objective of this discussion was to discuss from different Latin American spaces about the existing gender gap in Wikipedia and how, from its analysis, activities and actors, the will to eliminate them is manifested. The first wa related to the gender of the volunteers who participate in the editing of the articles created, in the number of articles created about women as well as in the language used to describe them in their biographical articles created in Wikipedia. We aimed at a double objective: to create and/or complete those biographical articles of women in the social sciences, law, humanities and sciences in general that have remained invisible in this space; and to empower women in the use of technologies and technological spaces dominated by men.
