Wiki Loves Womenː SheSaid
    SheSaid is part of the Wiki Loves Women initiative

    The #SheSaid drive, part of the Wiki Loves Women initiative, celebrates women leaders by focusing on enhancing their visibility through the creation and improvement of Wikiquote entries related to them.
    Since its launch in October 2020, the #SheSaid campaign on Wikiquote has achieved remarkable success. By January 5th, 2021, it had contributed to a total of 867 new or enhanced articles across seven languages, predominantly consisting of new entries. Among the languages, Italian Wikiquote emerged as the clear leader, with 405 articles, closely followed by Ukrainian Wikiquote with 187 articles and French with 105 articles. This outstanding outcome is truly incredible, and we extend our gratitude for amplifying the voices of women.
    Building upon this success, In 2021, the second edition of the campaign proved to be equally triumphant, resulting in the creation of 1500+ Wikiquote entries across nine languages, with numerous entries also receiving improvements. Italian and Tagalog emerged as the most active languages during this edition, further contributing to the mission of showcasing women's voices.
    In 2022, the WLW team was happy to run again the 3rd edition of the campaign which resulted in +4158 articles created or imported and +1918 articles improved.
    Due to its incredible success, the SheSaid campaign will be running for the fourth consecutive year, taking place from October 1st to December 31st, 2023. Building on the achievements of previous editions, this campaign aims to continue its efforts in improving the visibility of women by creating and enhancing Wikiquote entries related to their contributions.

    SOFONIE DALA [[1]]22:30, 07 December 2023 (UTC) My success is not measured by the number of likes, the number of shares, subscribers and the number of views. These are the metrics of #Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and social networks in general. This is how social media measure success. But my metric, my standard of evaluation and my success, is how much it changed my life, how much it contributed to my intimate reform, how much it positively impacted people's lives.[reply]
