#WomenOfColors: Celebrating the colors of #VisibleWikiWomen!
Let’s center the faces and achievements of women of colors, especially black, brown and indigenous women!
This is a mini-campaign to celebrate and increase the images of influential black, brown and indigenous women that are being uploaded to Wikipedia as part of the #VisibleWikiWomen campaign.
Join us! You are invited to:
- Participate by adding images of important women of colors from across the world within the broader VisibleWikiWomen category on Wikimedia Commons.
- Share your contributions using the hashtags #VisibleWikiWomen #WomenofColors and any others that make sense in your language and local contexts (#Latinxs #DalitWomen #BlackWomen #BrownWomen #Wikiseescolor etc.).
- Get counted! Add your username to our participant Dashboard to Let us know that you have joined the campaign!
If you're a super amigx partner, we invite to also:
- Campaign online, host events (if possible), ask for image donations and promote this effort in whatever ways make sense to you.
- Celebrate the women of colors you have already uploaded to the #VisibleWikiWomen campaign by sharing their image, a little of their story, and adding the hashtags #VisibleWikiWomen #WomenofColors and any others that make sense in your language and local contexts (#Latinxs #DalitWomen #BlackWomen #BrownWomen #Wikiseescolor etc.).
