Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User Group[edit]

Having worked for 2 years editing articles for Women In Red, a group of organizers have concluded that sourcing is one of the biggest hurdles in creating articles on women and non-binary genders. Though it is true that a lot of sourcing simply doesn’t exist, it is also true that there are sources, but we have no access to them. As these groups did not typically become subjects for academic study until the 1970s, many of the sources are not on line or are behind paywalls. Failure to include women and non-binary people in the encyclopedia presents a one-dimensional view of society and history. To address those issues, we are forming a new User Group aimed at referencing and support for like-minded groups and would appreciate your input or input from your supporters in our organizational process.

Greetings!

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which has been dedicated to improving contents that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.

This is a global online edit-a-thon, which is happening in at least 5 language editions of Wikipedia (en, he, es, it, bn) and Wikidata. Join us in this exciting venture, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing Users who are able to achieve the following:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Country Winners
  • Diversity winner
  • High quality contributors
  • Gender-gap fillers
  • Page improvers
  • Wikidata Translators

For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here.

If you'd love to organize this contest for your local wiki or organize in-person events centred around this project, or you need further information about the AfroCine Project, please leave a message on the project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 22:50, 03 October 2018 (UTC)

Project grant proposal: #VisibleWikiWomen 2019[edit]

Hello all, I wanted to let you all know that a Project Grant was submitted for the 2019 #VisibleWikiWomen challenge, a 'Whose Knowledge?' campaign to add more images of women to Commons and Wikipedia. In the 2018 pilot campaign, participants added over 800 images to Commons, and by May, over 500 of them were being used across Wikipedia. Next year, we have this goals: 1) add more diverse and quality images; 2) grow the network of non-Wikimedian partners; 3) incorporate images into more edit-a-thons. As an outcome, we expect that at least 1600 images of different women will be uploaded. We welcome your feedback on the proposal! Thank you in advance! --Señoritaleona (talk) 21:43, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
