Wikimedia CH/50Y Swiss Women's Suffrage/Documentation
Resources & Documentation
Welcome to the resources and documentation page. In this section we want to give you some inspiration about ongoing community-driven Wikimedia projects, available resources in the Wiki universe but also external resources such as web archives and additional links. Moreover, we want to give you the opportunity to enrich the page with relevant resources, material and links as well as to add highlights and stories of your activities and document the results and achievements in closing more and more the content and knowledge gap about the history of women's suffrage in Switzerland and women's biographies in Wikipedia.
Resources & Links
Below we collected some resources around "50 years Women's Suffrage in Switzerland". Since this is a collaborative project, we invite you to add additional links, if relevant. Moreover, we would appreciate very much if somebody would create and add an overview list on missing women's articles or existing articles to be enhanced or translated with relevance to this topic. When using material, please make sure you respect the copyright policies of the archives as well as the ones for the Wikimedia projects.

Events Highlights & Stories
As event organizers share your story with us in this section.
Wikipedia Workshop at Solothurner Filmtage
- The Wikipedia Workshop & Edit-a-thon in four languages at the Solothurner Filmtage was organized by Who writes his_tory? In collaboration with the Solothurner Filmtage, the Cinémathèque Suisse and Wikimedia CH. With approx. 50 participants it was a great occasion to work together on Swiss Women Filmmaker and their achievements as well as to get in contact with some Filmmakers such as Gertrud Pinkus and Lucienne Lanaz as well as Camerawomen Christine Munz. A big thank you to all organizers and participants! Please find below a little highlights video from this event.
"Hall of Women"
As contributor to this collaborative project, thank you for adding a woman's portrait of either your Wikimedia Commons upload, or your wikipedia article on a woman's biography you have been working on, if a portrait is available. There is some articles coverage on pioneers regarding Swiss women's suffrage. Nevertheless, many portraits are missing in the Wikipedia women's biographies. It would be a great achievement, if within this year, GLAM institutions would donate some portraits images of influencing Swiss and foreign women to be uploaded in Wikimedia Commons.
