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.

national geographic articleEdit

Just thought I'd highlight this national geographic article as it seems likely to have a bunch of content for a number of articles that seem to be in scope of this wikiproject. Hope it is some use also this entire issue looks to be relevantEdwardLane (talk) 16:23, 11 March 2021 (UTC)


Hi all, in light of recent events concerning the disappearance of Sarah Everard and the list of femicides read out in Parliament [1] and covered in the Guardian[2]. I have drafted a new navigation box template to highlight the femicides that have taken place and the organisations and support groups that exist also. I took my cue from the Black Lives Matter template (so it could cover related pages, existing and proposed legislation, popular culture also) but I wanted to gauge your opinion on the usefulness and appropriateness of the draft template as things stand. The template is here. and there is a discussion on the template's talk page about what is best to include (or not), so those who do not wish to see it do not have to.

Ying MaEdit

Hi all, I have added sufficient details and relevant references to save Ying Ma (writer). However, my added contents and references have been deleted. I do believe article needs your help. Please review the history and add your comments. [my latest revision] Thanks, SWP13 (talk) 16:13, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

The content you added was near-exclusively sourced to self-authored bios and to other self-sourced work (such as op-eds). If you weren't a regular editor, I would have strongly suspected your edit of being WP:COI due to the poor sourcing and the puffery. The fact that you filled the page with that kind of content (10,000 bytes) and was unable to find ANY reliable secondary coverage of this person demonstrates perfectly that she fails WP:N. As someone who takes WikiProject Women in Red seriously and has done my share to reduce the gender biases in content on this encyclopedia, keeping that page is wrongheaded. The person whose page you're filling with puffery and CV-style content does in no way meet WP:N requirements. Snooganssnoogans (talk) 16:22, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
