Fabulous collection of images, see below.

Thought some of you would be interested in this.

>
> Dear WMST-Lers
>
> I am pleased to announce the availability of a wonderful online collection of photographs of women’s everyday possessions in the 19th and early 20th centuries, plus numerous digitized texts (magazines, books, postcards, posters, and more) concerning women during that period. The objects and printed works themselves were amassed by Dovie Horvitz, and Illinois-based collector who hopes to find an institutional home for the entire collection some day — perhaps the presence of the photographs and digitized works will spark that interest. We hope so.
>
> Objects in the collection include clothing (dresses, hosiery, bustles, garters, swimwear, undergarments, aprons, and more), accessories such as shoes and boots, hats, gloves, purses, fans, handkerchiefs, furs, and parasols; menstrual and other health products; cosmetic and grooming kits, powders, and related make-up items; dresser sets (combs and brushes); curling irons and other hair care devices; perfumes; boudoir pillow covers; eye glasses; and exercise equipment. The printed matter includes numerous women’s magazines, Sunday supplement illustrations, sheet music about women, suffrage postcards, World War I and II posters, photographs of teen parties, and pamphlets about sex, health, and menstruation. Page after page of ad-filled women’s magazines, as well as packaging elements such as hairnet envelopes, hosiery, handkerchief and hat boxes, constitute an important part of the collection. Most of the material is American in origin.
>
> The collection seems of most immediate interest to women’s history classes, but American literature, communication arts (especially marketing), medical history, design, and other fields should also find it useful. It is also simply a pleasure to browse!
>
> Please pass this message along to others at your institution.
>
> The fully searchable and browsable  online collection homepage is athttp://digital.library.wisc.edu/1711.dl/GenderStudies.DovieHorvitz
>
> An article about the collection is at http://www.library.wisc.edu/news/2014/10/13/dovie-horvitz-collection-showcases-extraordinary-evolution-of-ordinary-women/ .

Re: Gendergap Digest, Vol 45, Issue 15

Regarding resources - please note that I have all the entries from CarolMoore sandbox as well as some others in:

I organized it as a table, so you can sort by author if you are looking from some author, or you can sort by format, if you want to identify reliable sources, or by date etc.

I want to move it from a personal sandbox to some better location, not sure whether it belongs in a Wikipedia page or a Meta page. I'm also looking for feedback on the list of formats, whether additional fields would be helpful, and how to make sure additional items are added, so we can have a comprehensive  list in one location.

Took material from original draft and put here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Countering_systemic_bias/Gender_gap_task_force/articles

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Countering_systemic_bias/Gender_gap_task_force/research

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Countering_systemic_bias/Gender_gap_task_force/projects

So let's keep adding good material to those.

At the original "Draft GGTF resources page" I have left the material
that does not directly mention Wikipedia /or/ that is not "reliable
sources" for further discussion on the talk page.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Carolmooredc/My_Sandbox_1

It includes various related projects, research studies/writings on
similar topics and/or communities, interesting blog and other articles

Theisen-Eaton and her Wikipedia page

A news story about a track and field sportswoman. It only mentions Wikipedia once, but it made me smile. 

Made me smile because they talk about her Wikipedia page... 

"In fact, Theisen-Eaton has her own Wikipedia page. While she said that it doesn’t feel particularly weird, she does wonder who wrote it, and her family and friends claim they’re not the culprit."

Survey re: gender gap

Hi,

I’ve just activated a survey re: the gender gap, primarily on the EN Wiki: https://jfe.qualtrics.com/form/SV_cILwYSqJB58SgFn 

This survey is a part of ongoing research related to an IEG: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Women_and_Wikipedia

If you have 10-20 minutes, I would greatly appreciate your participation. Also, please feel free to share the link to the survey to editors of all sexes and genders who are not on this mailing list.

This survey is open to ALL editors who contribute to the English language Wikipedia. It does not require or record your user name or real name.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me via amending <at> uw.edu or reach out to User:Mssemantics.

Thanks!

LGBT+ editathon in London on Saturday afternoon (18 October)

Hi, if you are in London this Saturday, you may enjoy taking part in
the first LGBT editathon in the UK.
Read more at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_LGBT_studies/Editathons/Bishopsgate_Library,_London

The afternoon is being hosted at the historic Bishopsgate Library. The
library is known for hosting LGBT archives, including materials for
the UK Campaign for Homosexual Equality, a huge collection of early
LGBT literature, LGBT rights protest literature and materials, and Gay
News (later Gay Times) archives including original press photography.

You can come along to find out more about the LGBT archives, join us
in improving the content of Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons better to
represent women active in LGBT+ history and culture, or thrash out
plans and projects for the global Wikimedia LGBT+ user group.

The editathon is part of a global initiative by the Wikimedia LGBT+
User Group to increase the quality of knowledge for LGBT topics on
Wikimedia projects.

Dear all,

It would be awesome if anyone can give me ideas about more details that can go into this page. I will be delighted to expand the page with your ideas!

Here is the link to the article : http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Wikiwomen%27s_Lunch

Thanks
