Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User GroupEdit

Having worked for 2 years editing articles for Women In Red, a group of organizers have concluded that sourcing is one of the biggest hurdles in creating articles on women and non-binary genders. Though it is true that a lot of sourcing simply doesn’t exist, it is also true that there are sources, but we have no access to them. As these groups did not typically become subjects for academic study until the 1970s, many of the sources are not on line or are behind paywalls. Failure to include women and non-binary people in the encyclopedia presents a one-dimensional view of society and history. To address those issues, we are forming a new User Group aimed at referencing and support for like-minded groups and would appreciate your input or input from your supporters in our organizational process.

Millie (short story) up for deletionEdit

Important author, Katherine Mansfield, particularly of short stories. Lots of sources at Google books. Referencing needs improvement. Only pretended compliance with WP:Before. Nominator says this is "a test case." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 7%266%3Dthirteen (talkcontribs) 14:50, October 19, 2019 (UTC)

Fortnight of French-speaking women authorsEdit

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this message. I'm a member of the project les sans paEs and I'm working on the organization of a new event: The Fortnight of French-speaking women authors (fr) (La Quinzaine des autrices francophones).

The main idea is to organize an online edit-a-thon, from March 14 to 27, 2022 as part of the Zébrures du printemps festival in Limoges (international festival of French-speaking theater). A physical gathering is planned for Wednesday, March 16 to raise awareness and invite people to participate, at the Limoges library, which is also taking part in the project. I specify that I do not work for these structures.

While doing my research, I discovered your list of Francophone African women writers and I looked into your project. I thought that maybe there was something to build together to give the event a bit of scope. Are there people among you who would be interested in talking about it?
