(include numeric target, if applicable)
Actual result Explanation


Looking back over your whole project, what did you achieve? Tell us the story of your achievements, your results, your outcomes. Focus on inspiring moments, tough challenges, interesting anecdotes or anything that highlights the outcomes of your project. Imagine that you are sharing with a friend about the achievements that matter most to you in your project.

  • This should not be a list of what you did. You will be asked to provide that later in the Methods and Activities section.
  • Consider your original goals as you write your project's story, but don't let them limit you. Your project may have important outcomes you weren't expecting. Please focus on the impact that you believe matters most.


If you used surveys to evaluate the success of your project, please provide a link(s) in this section, then briefly summarize your survey results in your own words. Include three interesting outputs or outcomes that the survey revealed.

Other : final remarks from geographical groupsEdit



We had planned to organize 3 edit-a-thons + 1 workshop around female youtubers and wikipedia + "keep in touch" with other Les sans pagEs groups

"3 editathons : create a local movement"

  • 2 edit-a-thons on "Women and Science" and "Women and Astronomy" with our partner La Casemate (04/25/2018 and 03/08/2019)
  • 1 edit-a-thon on the Gender Gap within the #EllesFest festival with our partner Le Magasin des Horizons (09/08/2018)
  • 1 mini-edit-a-thon about "Juliette Bertho" (female film director from Grenoble) with the Cinémathèque of Grenoble (11/21/2018)

We managed to get a range of Grenoble actors aware of the Gender Gap issue and establish links for the future.

"Workshop : Women on Wikipedia through Women on Youtube"

This project coulnd't be organized because of a series of reasons :

  • personal reasons took time out of my agenda and this project demanded a lot of organizationnal work
  • our main partner (La Casemate), which was supposed to host it, had their venue burned down by a criminal fire (still not fixed after one year and a half)
  • the WikiConvention Francophone took place in Grenoble (WMFrance announced it only after the grant was confirmed), which took energy from the local group and saturated the calendar for partners

Fortunately, a new Les sans pagEs group ("Méditerranée") was created in the meantime, and the remaining of our funds could be transfered to them.

I still hope we can make such an event happen in the future, maybe gathering more partners in order to have everything properly financed (including organizational work).

Keeping in touch

  • I (Opsylac) could participate in two edit-a-thons, one in Paris and one in Sion.
  • I was trained to use the dashboard instruments at the WikiConvention
  • Aude, other user from Grenoble, participated in the MAMCO edit-a-thon in Geneva.



Description / HistoryEdit

2017 : Beginning within the framework of the GLAM agreement between the Hérault Departmental Archives and Wikimedia France The Women and Feminism (Hérault) Contribution Workshops on Wikipedia are offered by the Hérault Departmental Archives, It is a friendly moment, each person brings what they want to eat and drink for a shared meal. Wikipermamence of February 6, 2017 Wikipermamence of February 6, 2017 Wikipermamence of February 6, 2017

2018 : Increasing skills The workshops "femmes et féminisme (Hérault)" is an event proposed as part of the partnership between the Hérault Departmental Archives, Wikimedia France and Montpel'libre. These workshops aim to bridge the gender gap, make women more visible in Wikipedia and bring more women into the contribution. It is a time slot where people gather to discover Wikipedia, write, edit, translate or illustrate an article. Participants can either create an account on Wikipedia in advance, or create one the same day, and come (if possible) to the Wikipermanence with a computer. The space has a few computer workstations but you should not hesitate to bring your own equipment. The Archives offers documentary files ready to be used to feed existing pages or to create new ones, but all proposals for articles and biographies are welcome. The idea is to write about what affects us first and foremost.

September 2018 : Participation in the creation of a group specific to the Mediterranean : lsp med The Hérault Departmental Archives wanted to join the movement of those without Mediterranean pages. The event is then always proposed as part of the partnership between the Hérault Departmental Archives, Wikimedia France and Montpel'libre. In the form of wikipermanences, the stated objective is to help bridge the gender gap, make women more visible in Wikipedia and bring more women into the contribution. The new title of the wikipermanence is "History of women in the Hérault". The Archives offers documentary files ready to be used to feed existing pages or to create new ones, but all proposals for articles and biographies are welcome.

2019 : Setting up Archiwiki Matrimoine workshops The Hérault Departmental Archives continue their participation in the movement of the non-Mediterranean pagEs, and maintain the holding of recurrent workshops to help contribute to the history of Hérault women, taking the name "Archiwiki" from January 2019 onwards: understanding the contraction of the term Archives and Wiki. The Archives also confirms its place within the overall GLAM project (acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).

Methods and activitiesEdit

Please provide a list of the main methods and activities through which you completed your project.

Project resourcesEdit

Please provide links to all public, online documents and other artifacts that you created during the course of this project. Even if you have linked to them elsewhere in this report, this section serves as a centralized archive for everything you created during your project. Examples include: meeting notes, participant lists, photos or graphics uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, template messages sent to participants, wiki pages, social media (Facebook groups, Twitter accounts), datasets, surveys, questionnaires, code repositories... If possible, include a brief summary with each link.


The best thing about trying something new is that you learn from it. We want to follow in your footsteps and learn along with you, and we want to know that you took enough risks in your project to have learned something really interesting! Think about what recommendations you have for others who may follow in your footsteps, and use the below sections to describe what worked and what didn’t.

What worked wellEdit

What did you try that was successful and you'd recommend others do? To help spread successful strategies so that they can be of use to others in the movement, rather than writing lots of text here, we'd like you to share your finding in the form of a link to a learning pattern.

I've tried three times to build a learning pattern. 3 times i rewrote everything and everything was lost upon publishing. I dont have the time and energy to restart again, sorry.

  • developping synergies among participants and create a sense of community around the francophone gender gap issue
  • the number of events, pubished articles and press review
  • Your learning pattern link goes here

What didn’t workEdit

What did you try that you learned didn't work? What would you think about doing differently in the future? Please list these as short bullet points.

  • budgeting by geographical group turned out to be time consuming, difficult to enact remotely, and not flexible at all. Some groups are very active and develop finacial needs whereas others were not able to fulfil the objectives and we had to reallot the budgets to other geographical locations which took time and energy.
  • we did not manage to write quality articles, this objective was not met, because the project worked so well that we were caught in activities of training newbies.


If you have additional recommendations or reflections that don’t fit into the above sections, please list them here.

Next steps and opportunitiesEdit

Are there opportunities for future growth of this project, or new areas you have uncovered in the course of this grant that could be fruitful for more exploration (either by yourself, or others)? What ideas or suggestions do you have for future projects based on the work you’ve completed? Please list these as short bullet points.
