We invite women’s and feminist organizations, culture and memory institutions, Wikipedia editors, user groups, chapters, and anyone who would like to give women the visibility and acknowledgment they deserve, to join us in this 4th edition of #VisibleWikiWomen from 8 March to 8 May 2021. We're proud and grateful for the +15000 images of women that have been made available by our partners and friends during the last 3 years, but we're also aware that there is so much more to be done! Join us!
We are a global campaign to center the knowledge of marginalized communities (the majority of the world) on the internet.
We have compiled questions brought up by #VisibleWikiWomen participants throughout the campaign in this new FAQ resource. It will help participants, partners, and allies, to have a better experience when bringing their images online. Take a look and find the answer to that doubt that has been bugging you! If you don't find what you are looking for, drop us a line with your question and we will incorporate it—this is a work in progress!
When womxn are not writing the news, our voices, perspectives and worldviews are excluded from the stories that get published. When we are not the decision makers around what gets published, our images, stories and contributions are erased or often portrayed through a biased and stereotypical patriarchal lens. Read more about how four African journalists are changing this through the online magazine FeminStyle.
