SheSaid Philippines

The SheSaidPH2021 is an initiative of Filipino volunteers aimed in improving the visibility of women by creating new quote entries or improving existing quotations associated with them. This is in participation for the international SheSaid drive of Wiki Loves Women.

SheSaid is part of the Wiki Loves Women initiative

Project Goal of the SheSaidPH2021[edit]

The gender gap is still visible in some wiki projects, the reason why we have the WikiGap Campaign, A+F campaign, VisibleWikiWomen, and SheSaid. This is a good start for a growing Wikiproject especially that it is in its initial stage. The earlier we supplement it with contents choosing women and feminism as subjects, the less we will rush to work with it in the future. As a support to bridge the gap in gender representation, this project will focus on:

  1. Increasing and/or improving content on notable Filipino women on different Wikiquote platforms;
  2. Promoting the Philippine language Wikiquote platforms under incubation (Wikisambit, Wikikawikaan) using fair gender representation;
  3. Recruitment of new editors and improving skills of existing editors through a series of edit-a-thons;
  4. Foster an open culture through meet-ups and include more women in the community of volunteers.

How do we do this?[edit]

This project aims to conduct a series of edit-a-thons both online and offline. Focus will be on improving contents about Filipino women on Wikiquote, Wikisambit and Wikikawikaan. The team will inform the community through the different community portals of the different Philippine language-based wiki projects. This project will also be advertise to the different social media channels of Wikimedia volunteers from the Philippines. Community portals of the following wikiprojects:

Wikimedia Incubator
Central Bikol Wiktionary
Tagalog Wikipedia

The team will create a discussion page within the Philippine-language Wikiquote to foster active interactions within the wiki projects. Participants will be group in a secured social media chat room for easy communication. Continuous meet-up with the editors and informal technical support will be provided after this project.
