> Hello -

> Sydney's observation recently that I would appreciate comments on my proposal to get a Wikipedian in Residence established at West Virginia University Libraries. Is correct. I am new to the Wikipedia community so I will benefit from feedback during the rest of April. We are excited to begin the work of addressing the Gender Gap in Wikipedia with the resources of the University behind us. Thank you in advance for your perspectives and advice.

Hi everyone,

FYI, West Virginia University Libraries are planning to set up a Wikipedian-in-Residence program focused on women and gender issues: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Wikipedian_in_Residence_for_Gender_Equity.

I'm not sure whether they'll be funded by IEG, but we should reach out to them in any case, given that WV is technically in our region; we would probably want to collaborate with them in one fashion or another regardless of the funding situation.

Cheers,
Kirill

Inspire Campaign Proposal: Request for Feedback

Hi everyone,

I would really love your feedback on my Inspire Grant proposal, "Bored with Boards: Attract Pinterest Users to Wikipedia."

The project would entail initiating a match-making program between Wikipedia articles and women who are actively engaged in content creation and evaluation on female-dominated social networks, such as Pinterest.

Thanks a lot!

Outcome of IdeaLab/Inspire campaign

My arm is in a cast/splint. Not in good spirits, not getting around well. Got a request to participate in a survey re the Inspire campaign. Made me wonder: What was the result? Which, if any, ideas are going to be supported.

I gave up on WikiProject Women because there was so much hatred thrown at the idea and I had no idea how to proceed, even though a lot of people did support it.

Finally: Could someone please tell me if this posts? I don't seem to get things that I post to this list!

Re: Article: Wikipedia trolls now vs. women architects

One can always just study the relevant articles.
But often it's a double standard in application of policies.
So if it's a guy architect with a couple low quality refs,
people won't even bother to notice or respond.
But if it's a woman architect with 7 or 8 solid ones,
it becomes a cause celebre to delete the article.
And none of that "give the women a chance to
beef it up" nonsense either.

It tends to be quite irrational and knee jerk. 
I've seen the same thing on articles about writers,
professors, politicians, anyone with even a mild
POV that goes against the alleged mainstream. 
Their articles sometimes are ruthlessly attacked
and nitpicked. But if you just put a tag for
better references (or any references at all!) on
 articles about individuals with an allegedly more
mainstream view who editors merely claim are
important in their field, you may get a lot of grief.

That's what systemic bias is all about it.

I remember NOT commenting on that one because I figured, who could have a problem with that?

How soon we forget that getting MORE women articles and editors was and remains controversial.

Banging head vs. wall....

Article: Wikipedia trolls now vs. women architects

https://sourceable.net/advocates-for-women-architects-battle-wikipedia-trolls/#
.....

According to event organizer Lori A. Brown, one of the event organizers and an associate professor of the Syracuse University School of Architecture, the project was a timely response to online trolls in the Wikipedia community who would seek to diminish the contribution of women to the architecture profession.

“We realized it is time to take action,” said Brown, pointing to “a friend’s experience this summer linguistically wrestling with Wikipedia editing trolls who were doing their utmost to un-write women out of a certain section of activism.”

Wikipedia and Feminism.

Dear readers of the gender gap mailing list,

My name is Lukas and I am a German Wikipedian (User:Gnom).

I recently wrote a blog post on Wikipedia and feminism and was encouraged to share it with this list.

As I am very new to the gender gap debate, I would appreciate your comments.
Regards,

Lukas Mezger

Introducing myself

Hello everyone.  The email I received says I should introduce myself, so I guess I'll say a little something.  I'm ekips39, or Spike, and I joined this list because I'd like to help with the gender gap and this might provide more opportunities for that.  Looking forward to participating in the mailing list if I can think of anything to say.
