#VisibleWikiWomen: postcards of power and diversity

Posted May 10, 2018 by

During the #VisibleWikiWomen challenge, the Wikimedia community and collaborators of the feminist movement focused on making more visible those women relevant to history and our time, who often go unnoticed. The contributions of images exceeded our expectations, and more than 800 new files were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons! The great quality of some of these images, as well as the stories of these women, led us to think: how can we use this valuable common visual heritage in inspiring ways?
