Wiki Loves Women/Focus Group/SheSaid 2022 Cameroon

There are significant numbers of notable women who have shaped the past of our societies. There are innovative African female business women who help to drive Africa’s many economies (formal and informal). In this regard, the Wiki Loves Women initiative celebrates women leaders with the SheSaid drive. This event is organised in Cameroon with the aim of improving the visibility of African women by creating new entries or editing already existing entries on the English and French Wikiquote.
