Wikimedia CH/50Y Swiss Women's Suffrage/Documentation

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

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. If you are not sure, please contact the respective institution to clarify the rights and inform yourself if the material is either in public domain or available under a CC BY SA license.

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.

Wikipedia Workshop at Historical Museum Olten

  • With the support of the Historical Museum Olten and Diego Haettenschwiler, it was possible to organize a hybrid event for this edit-a-thon. Luisa Bertolaccini, the Museum's Director, has exclusively lead the workshop participants through the closed exhibition "Women Pioneers. An Appreciation". We were allowed to screen record the museum tour and the following discussion. For facilitating this event, we chose a low-level technical set-up. Most important for us was the possibility to learn about the exhibition and receive access to research and material. During the Wikipedia workshop, Lukas Gerber supported the voluntary community in answering questions and requests by email. In Switzerland, Museums are allowed to re-open by beginning of March. Therefore, you can visit the Historical Museum Olten and this important exhibition until August 8, 2021. Please follow the link to a little highlights video from the live tour and the Q&A session.

"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.
