Campaign link : Wiki Loves Women/SheSaid
The Wiki Loves Women initiative celebrates women leaders with the SheSaid drive. The drive is aimed at improving the visibility of women in creating new or improving already existing Wikiquote entries related to them.
First launched in October 2020, the #SheSaid campaign on Wikiquote has been an amazing success! Across 7 languages, by the 5th January 2021, it resulted overall in 867 new or improved articles (the majority new). Italian Wikiquote was the clear language winner (405 articles) with Ukraine (187) and French (105) coming not so close behind. This is an amazing result - thank you for getting women’s voices heard.
The second edition was yet again a success with 1500+ Wikiquote entries created (and more improved) in 9 languages ! Italian and Tagalog were the most active languages. Congrats to all :)
Given its first and second editions success and noting that there is still a lot to do, the #SheSaid drive will run again end of 2022 :)

The Wiki Loves Women initiative is celebrating Africa’s women leaders throughout March 2020 with the Tell Us About Her drive on the ISA tool.
The drive was aimed at improving the visibility of political leaders and activists across Africa on Wikimedia projects. If you do not know it yet, the ISA tool is a fun and mobile friendly tool that helps you to add better descriptions onto the photographs uploaded to Wikimedia Commons within selected categories, so that they are more useful on Wikipedia and Wikidata. Information added to the image description is structured data (depicts or captions). Categories I chose for this campaign are related to politicians, activists and in particular feminists from Africa.
We invite you to check out what the ISA tool is (if you have not yet done so during previous drives). And of course invite you to join and help add structured data information on our ISA current campaign Tell Us about Her.
Results: 1519 contributions from 14 contributors on 1782 images. 1st place: User:Wikinade; 2nd place: User:Gamaliel; 3rd place: c:User:Vanotchere - Congratulations to them all!!
