PhilWiki Community/WikiGap Philippines 2022

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

WikiGap Campaign in the Philippines is a community outreach initiated by PhilWiki Community which runs from March 1st to March 31st. An offline event to be participated by women and members of the Community will take place on March 5 in Naga City. A month-long WikiGap editing activities will be dedicated on building knowledge about women and related topics.

The #WikiGap campaign is a partnership between Wikimedia affiliates and The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and invites broad and diverse participation, and allows for local adaptations to the overall theme of closing the gender gap and other gaps relevant for diversity on Wikipedia.

WikiGap events take place around International Women's Day in March 2022 and continue during the year in several cities around the world run by the Swedish Embassy and local Wikimedia affiliates. Find out more about WikiGap on: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiGap.

In March 2017, a sister edit-a-thon in four languages between the Swedish embassy in New Delhi and Stockholm was organized for International Women's day. The Swedish embassies in Pretoria and Washington DC then followed and hosted Wikipedia edit-a-thons with Wikimedia chapters.
Since then, the ministry has developed a tool kit for how embassies should organize Wikipedia edit-a-thons, and they are committed to surfacing the achievements of women in the world’s largest encyclopedia, in partnership with Wikimedia affiliates and other local organizations.
In the Philippines, PhilWiki Community joined the global campaign in 2019 wherein the participants focused on creating new articles on LGBTQ and Women related topics thru Translation. As a result, two Community members have made it to the top contributors, internationally.
In 2020, five participants improved at least 30 articles each during the campaign launch and they actively worked to improve the visibility of women in seven Philippine languages namely: Bikol, Cebuano, Ilocano, Kapampangan, Pangasinan, Tagalog, and Waray.
In 2021, in partnership with Developh Community, PhilWiki Community had a 1-hour WikiGAP: Closing the Digital Gender Gap discussion via livestream to launch WikiGap in the Philippines.[1] The organization introduced its activities and answered relevant issues related to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia movement.
Wikipedia is the world’s largest online and user-generated encyclopaedia. Knowledge is power, and Wikipedia has the potential to color our view of the world. But there is great imbalance between men and women on the website, like in society at large.
Ninety per cent (90%) of those who add content to Wikipedia are men. There are four times as many articles about men as there are about women. The figures vary regionally, but no matter how you look at it, the picture is clear: the information about women is less extensive than that about men. Regardless of which language version of Wikipedia you read. We want to change this.
#WikiGap is an event during which people around the world gather to add more content to Wikipedia about women figures, experts and role models in various fields. Similar events have already been arranged in almost 60 countries worldwide to improve women’s representation on the internet.
Together, we want to bring about a more gender-equal internet – and a more gender-equal world.
