Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User Group edit

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.

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 authors edit

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?

Women in Red: Help and Translate Ruth Baza Author from Wikipedia (es and fr) edit

I would like to ask for help from a more pro editor and / or contribute this time by translating (making some modifications and adjustments) the Wikipedia page (actually in Spanish and French) of Spanish born author, photographer and former journalist Ruth Baza, who is also on the news worldwide for a couple of months, due to a dramatic event she lived in the act of service as one of the youngest and more respected former correspondent, aged 23, ill but strong and determined, in 1995, with a celebrity in Paris after interviewing this man for one of the most important film mags of Spain, Cinemania. According to WOMEN PRESS FREEDOM and The Coalition of Women in Journalism: "Ruth Baza has bravely come forward with her allegations against Gérard Depardieu. Her courage in speaking out about a rape that allegedly occurred nearly 30 years ago is not only commendable but also essential in the ongoing fight against sexual violence and the culture of silence in the media and entertainment industries. We believe that Ruth Baza's decision to file a criminal complaint, despite the significant passage of time and the legal hurdles, is an important step towards achieving justice, not just for herself but for all survivors of sexual assault who have felt powerless against influential figures. By coming forward, Baza has reignited critical conversations about sexism within the film industry, particularly in France, where recent reports have shed light on deeply ingrained misogynistic attitudes." This is an important step, a social and political storm in France and the Film Industry. Her career is very interesting as she belongs to the Generation X as author of a book that marked a generation, several stories, her unique way of writing ancd making interviews to personalities worldwide, and also her work as a photographer (mostly rock and grunge icons), who exhibited last year in Chicago with the best female music photographers of the world courtesy of Courtney Love, and more. I will probably need help.... Or if any of you, editors want to translate it or make your own version based on the existing pages and the hundreds references, I will be pleased to help as I have done and do when I have time to improve pages as an amateur editor, on people of interest who has worked hard to achieve great things, a Cultural legacy that can´t be lost, History. Thank you in advance for your time and help! More courageous smart women who dare to speak loud on such awful events with all the consequences, and who devote and advocate for Culture, Art, Knowledge, Equality and Freedom of Speech are needed to be known.
