quote : We have to care about our bodies and what we put in them. Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health—take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish. The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself. "Beyoncé Wants to Change the Conversation", interview with Elle (4 April 2016)

#SheSaid drive on bcl Wikiquote incubator[edit]

Hello everyone,

I would just want to ask if it's possible to join this campaign even if our local Wikiquote is still in its incubator status. This will be of very big help for us since we're not only developing the status of the local Wikiquote but also doing contributions for this movement. Thank you very much!

Please do! —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:43, 3 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for mentionning it ! Anthere (talk)

These postcards are missing images[edit]

Yes, thank you. It is true ! It is not a bug, it is a feature. This was to outline that those women actually did not have a picture on Commons... They need pictures :) Anthere (talk)

Next SheSaid[edit]

Hello. We'll host a new SheSaid in October 2021 ! I hope you are still keen to participate this year !

There is something new this year. Several women will host events in their countries to present Wikiquote and host edit-a-thon as part of SheSaid (and more generally to reflect on the gender gap of course). You may already know some of them, whilst others are new comers and will benefit from your warm and friendly collective support.
Some submitted some rapid grant requests and if you think their proposals are good and you want to support the development of wiki activities in their countries, please drop by the grant request and add your support; This would be much appreciated. The list :

Permission to add results from BCL and TL Wikiquote[edit]

Hi Anthere, this is just to ask permission if we can also add from the list the primary results of the edits we had on both BCL and TL Wikiquote which are currently on incubator. We will be manually counting the created articles since the #SheSaidPH2021 we used on hashtag tracker generate no results. Our campaign will end by this month but we would be happy to share the initial results of our local campaign here. Thank you very much.Kunokuno (talk) 11:59, 8 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Absolutely ! Just go forward. Please do. I was going to ask you ! I know the hashtag tool does not work (bummer). So yes, it is more complicated. So please yes, we do need you to report the PH2021 figures ! Anthere (talk) @Kunokuno:
Hi Anthere, it was just now that I've added the contributions we have for the Central Bikol and Tagalog Wikiquote. Took me quite a while before I was able to notice your reply on my first message, apologies. I was able to see the post on Twitter this morning and I was reminded. :) Congratulations on the great turn out of the SheSaid Campaign 2021 for all the participating communities. Kunokuno (talk) 13:22, 25 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah !!! Good ! Let’s update the latest figures ! Yes, Candy posted the results today. There is a blog post too ! Anthere (talk) 15:42, 25 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

News from the hashtag tool[edit]

Some of you know that the hashtag tool has stopped working at some point and this is making our lives a bit more complicated for tracking.

I reported the issue on Phabricator and got some news !

Sorry for the delay in looking into this - the tool isn't officially maintained and I missed this. It looks like the last data we have is September 30th.
I'm trying to fix this today; the problem appears to be an SSL error in the collection script container - it can't connect to the eventstream. Suspect this has to do with us using an old VM so I'm going to aim to hit two birds with one stone and upgrade production to Debian Stretch.
Once this gets up and running again we'll be able to collect historical data from up to 30 days ago, but unfortunately will have lost anything between then and September 30th.

Did I mention that the tool is down again ? SIGH Anthere (talk)

Incoming results SheSaid-2021[edit]

Nice !!! Anthere (talk)

And this is the blogpost to announce the results ! Anthere (talk)

Results 2021 ![edit]

WLW Barnstar.png

Hello friends !

The SheSaid drive is over ! All results may be found here.

For 2021, nine different language communities contributed – Italian, Ukrainian, English, Tagalog, Igbo, Spanish, French, Central Bikol, and Catalan. In addition to the global drive, 12 members of Wiki Loves Women’s Focus Group held local training and participation drives with their communities.

Across the 9 language Wikiquotes a collective of 1,514 articles were created. This ensures that 1,514 notable women whose voices and wisdom had previously not been featured, can now be easily accessed. Articles for a further 309 women were improved. In addition, 638 articles featuring notable women were created on Kinyarwanda Wikipedia (Wikipediya mu Kinyarwanda) by the activities of the Wiki Loves Women Focus Group member in Rwanda in collaboration with Wikimedia Rwanda Usergroup.

The Italian language community through the enthusiasm of the Wiki Donne user group was again the most outstanding contributor to the SheSaid Campaign. This community created articles about 609 women and improved a further 227 articles. The next prolific contender, the Tagalog language community (currently in incubator status) created 308 new articles. The third highest contributing language community was to the EnglishUkrainian language Wikiquote by creating 169 articles and improving a further 55 articles.

Below are the stats impact for the SheSaid Campaign across 9 different languages that participated in 2021;

The lack of women’s voices in the digital domain is a global issue, one that we can collective work on in order to change how women are viewed. Wiki Loves Women is awed by the response and enthusiasm to the second edition of this drive, and looks forward to the third version in 2022! We urge that anyone can join this initiative and continue to make an impact by adding more articles about women !

The #SheSaid campaign will return in October 2022. To better organize this edition, we would like to know whether you plan participating to it or not :)

There is still time. But in case you need funding, please be aware that the application for a small grant to the Wikimedia Foundation needs to be done before the 1st September 2022!

We plan to organise an office hour dedicated to the @SheSaid campaign in July.

If you are interested (even if not sure to join #SheSaid because it will depend on a thousand of things), please drop your name below so that we make sure to inform you !


Anthere (talk) 19:43, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will probably only participate to the extent that I will try to make new pages for women in my spare time: I don't have a plan for programmatic additions. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:49, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, and as an admin at en.wq, I will encourage the same. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:50, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great ! Thanks User:Koavf. Anthere (talk)
I am really interested but faced misuse of access. Some small wikis suffers a lot. I have been blocked indefinite in Persian Wikiquote based on Persian Wikipedia's gossips, and I have issues in Arabic Wikiquote too, just been blocked for a week; Because lack of the local policies like Image use policy, Quotability, etc... and a pro-blocking admin there, made me semi-retired. Ruwaym (talk) 20:14, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bytheway, I Improved many entires of women in both Arabic and Persian Wikiqoutes, out of time, like: Farzaneh Ta'idi, Shirin Ebadi, Farzaneh Kabuli, Googoosh, Leila Forouhar, Tahmineh Milani, Fatemeh Mo'tamed-Araia, Niki Karimi - Ibtihal al-Khatib, Nadin Labaki, Rahma Riad, Arab women and Women. They really said cool things.
But the access-holders are not chosen for their logical reasoning and familiarity with universal principles, "community consensus" is always matter, even if a clear violation occurs. So #SheSaid cannot be universal while there is misuse of access by local people in small wikis. With Regards. Ruwaym (talk) 20:30, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Tough :((( Anthere (talk) 23:20, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Here it is the 2022 Italian page event. We absolutely need the central notice banner this year, can someone already start to think about? 🥰 --Camelia (talk) 21:33, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good idea Camelia. We can definitely do that. Do you suggest we ask for a central notice only on wikiquote ? Are wikiquote/meta ? Or more than that ? What do you think ? User:Ciell can probably help on this ? Anthere (talk)
@Anthere Of course, having it on Wikipedia and Wikiquote, even if not for all the two month (let's say 2 weeks at the beginning), would be great. But should work also only on Wikiquote, I know communities have many things to promote with banners (WokiDonne itself has other activities during that period that would like to know). --Camelia (talk) 07:17, 15 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok. Let me create a quick request and we can discuss with the central notice admin what would be the best regime of display depending on what’s displayed at that time. Anthere (talk)
To be discussed here : CentralNotice/Request/SheSaid Anthere (talk) 09:50, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I hope I will be attending on jawp and maybe on wikidata. Question Question: One small ripple. Have many-one encouraged your community to add hashtag on article-talkpage for SheSaid? I am keen to know if before/after hashtag, you find more articles added locally? My hunch is that ear-marking those contribute/support SheSaid is a convenient way to those people among jawp editors/readers who are not quite happy about adding not-popular female somebody. Very sorry, but I sense supporting equality/lowering gender gap on jawp has lowered its voltage, and wonder how it will attract more editors/readers on the subject. Me personally love to hear stories of who said what, and thrilled to listened to the She sphere <3 --Omotecho (talk) 22:17, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Omotecho Same for me. It's not just about the Women, not about Patriarchy vs Feminism, It's about being Liberal and Modernist. Liberalism and Humanism is not widely accepted in Persian and Arab wp and wk. I faced troubles there, a multi-identital-cultural-racial user have no choice but to contribute only in English projects. Ruwaym (talk) 10:16, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I do not think anyone added the hashtag on the talk page of the articles. Worth trying... Perhaps you could try a template, mentioning the article is from #shesaid ? Anthere (talk)
@Anthere, hi, the hashtag idea is borrowed from w:en:Women_in_Red. @Camelia might have better orientation to offer from WiR sphere please? --re-positioned my comment as timestamp-wise. Omotecho (talk) 02:28, 15 July 2022 (UTC) / Omotecho (talk) 01:38, 15 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Side note, we can use queries such as this one to track the use of a hashtag. Anthere (talk) 09:11, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dear Anthere,

thanks for the notification and update on this year's #Shesaid Campaign. I would love to organise a local meetup / editathons for Librarians in Nigeria to promote the use and contributions of Librarians to Wikiqoute. Please keep me updated on the proposed date for the office hours. Thanks, Bukky658 (talk) 09:58, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello dear Bukky658. This is noted !!! Anthere (talk)

Hi Anthere, our group will definitely join this campaign this year considering also that both the wikiquote projects we're working on incubator might get it's own domain soon. :) Thanks for the invite. In behalf of Wiki Advocates Philippines. Kunokuno (talk) 11:31, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
