Launching the #SheSaid drive on WikiquoteEdit

Why is Graca Machel not on Wikiquote?

On the 20th October, at the Gender Gap panel for the Creative Commons Virtual Global Summit, Wiki Loves Women's Anthere and Islahaddow launched the SheSaid campaign. The SheSaid drive is aimed at improving the visibility of women across Wikimedia projects by creating new or improving already existing Wikiquote entries spoken by notable women.

Why the SheSaid campaign?
One reason is to balance the representation of gender in the entries of Wikiquote. The other is to show that women's quotes are less likely to be featured than men's. Here are a few statistics:

  • On the English Wikiquote main page on 6th of Oct 2020, in the Selected people section... 29 men are featured and only 4 women (check out the screenshot on the right...)
  • There are 233 women who have a featured article on either French or English Wikipedias... with no entry on the French Wikiquote check it out
  • There are 141 women featured article on the English Wikipedia with no wikiquote entry check it
  • There are 519 women listed on the French wikiquote check it and 3117 men listed check it out

Obviously, not all women say good quotes that would make a wikiquote entry worth it. Still...

How to get involved?
SheSaid runs until the 20h of December 2020. We hope you will take part! Please share with your community! To find out more and join the campaign here.

If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status.

Request for assistance at Julie Sweet and related articleEdit

Hello, editors! WikiProject Women editors might be interested in reviewing this request to update the article for Julie Sweet, the chair and CEO of Accenture, a Fortune Global 500 company. You'll see my request seeks to add some basic information to her biography, such as the fact that she is now chair, she was ranked number 1 on Fortune's Most Powerful Women list in 2020, and some of her board work.

If anyone is interested in the company she leads, I've also posted another request at Talk:Accenture. I've submitted these requests on behalf of Accenture, as disclosed appropriately on both Talk pages. I appreciate your consideration. Inkian Jason (talk) 16:01, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
