Annual dinner of les sans pagEs We met in Saveurs and Couleurs Restaurant in Geneva to celebrate a convivial evening thanks to WikimediaCH and les sans pagEs support During the dinner we speaks about different projects related with the Differences between Genres reduction thanks to Wikimedia Ch that propose to finance the event... - In Sion with the beginning of Valais meetings, they will organise a meeting once par month in regional multimedia library. Magatim propose celebrate the next annual meeting in a Valais CARNOTZET. With Via Mullieres association soon will appear a film in open source that explain women roles in through the history.

- In Grenoble, where Opsylac organise Woman and Science edithathons, she wish organise a les sans pagEs local group. We try to see ideas about who to have budget to this project. - In Geneva, for the second edition to Art-Feminsime, we propose participate in an exposition and conference about Charlotte Salomon and Shamsia Hassani and contribute in the universe of this two artists. Shamsia will be present in the event and will paint to celebrate the date. The event will have the support of Equality service of Geneva university, Émilie Gourd foundation and les culturElles. - Talking about Wikisource, Yann propose a project to import Jeannne de Jussie books (a difficult task because they are written in old French) and to Dominique de Villeneuve, he also has the idea to create a Feminine Books list for Wikisource. The books collection by Marie Dentière are been upload thanks to a gender study that has being place in Geneva, but their totality will not be 100% accessible in open source. Is important to collaborate although contributions between inter projects Wikimedia, and to not forget the small projects, also important to share the knowledge with open source.

Yann thinks that from India will be more useful if we use sim cards instead of USB because not everybody has a computer, but many people has a mobile. - We realise that our local initiatives don’t have many people and with inter initiatives groups sharing our ideas, we have better opportunities to improve our local actions and future ideas. - We show the interactive calendar and explain how to update it. - The night goal is achieve to have a local group in the most important French cities from now to a period of 5 years.
