Hi there I am in wikipedia since 2016 mostly on the French Wikipedia. I mostly am active on les sans pagEs project. I also have starting completing Wikipedian articles by adding photos of local celebrities I meet when I attend conferences. I am working with 'Name'Nattes à chat' mostly on the finance follow up of the project "Let's fill the gender gap through community building" and of the association "les sans pagEs". Mother of 2 children and company owner living in France and in Switzerland I would say that I am a typical example of a person who is interested in Wikipedia but does not contribute a lot due to lack of time. However as time goes by I realise that I feel more confident and I think it is important that people like myself do contribute even little than none at all, thanks to projects like the current one.

Hi, I am long time Wikimedian (started editing in 2002). I am mainly involved in Commons and Wikisource with some edits on other projects. A better gender balance is essential to maintain a warm and healthy working atmosphere, and a balanced and varied content. Gender disparity contribute to the inequality of subjects, and to unfair treatments of these subjects.

I contribute to Wikipedia since 2014. I participate on the French Wikipedia and Commons. The project Les SansPages help me to reduce the Gender Gap in a safe environment. I can focus on the articles I work on and find help when I need it. I am active on the projects les sans pagEs and Les Ateliers Femmes et féminisme. What is important to me is to discuss experiences on the Gender Gap in Wikipedia.

Art+Feminism 2017 in Paris

I contribute since 2014, and my interest in the gender gap rise continuously. I became one of the main organizers of gender gap focused in Paris, like Art+Feminism. On Wikipedia I contribute to the SansPages project which is now of the most active projects on the wiki. Sharing experiences with Geneva community, and other groups fighting the gender gap in french-speaking areas is super precious!

LaMèreVeilleEdit

In my spare time, I contribute on biographies of women in the French speaking Wikipedia. I participated to the first French Wikiconvention in 08/2016 where I met others contributors IRL involved in this project. During this convention, I co-organized an Hackathon on Paralympics games where 20 biographies on females athletes were created. I took part also in Art+Feminism 2017 in Geneva.

FrimousseRocheEdit

Hi there, I contribute since 2017 and I found in les sans pagEs an attentive listening and space of exchange that corresponds perfectly to the way I thought my engagement on Wikipedia. More experienced contributors are always available and good advice. I mainly contribute to the twin project Les Ateliers Femmes et féminisme in French, and I support their action to reduce gender gap in the encyclopedia. To write biographies of women represents for me the right balance between the transmission of knowledge and my feminist aspirations.
