Childcare at an edit-a-thon

Hello all,

I'm organizing a feminist edit-a-thon in Seattle at UW for February or early March. This event will be a conversation about media literacy and reading between the lines in light of the Wikipedia Gender Gap, an editing tutorial, and a space for editing/writing on missing entries. 

The event will be primarily geared for folks affiliated with the UW, but also for the public.

As a feminist event, I'd like to provide childcare, particularly since it's likely the event might be happening on a Saturday.

For those of you who have organized edit-a-thons before, how have you accommodated for dependents? If you've arranged childcare at edit-a-thons, would you be willing to share what you did and how it went? 

Please feel free to email me directly. Also, if there are any Wikimedians/pedians in Seattle who I haven't met, I'd love to be in touch.

Happy Halloween all -- and thanks, as always, for a fiery and inspiring listserv and all the work many of you are doing. I've been a member on this list for a long time, and the contents of this list really do bring me joy -- and have also inspired action. Thanks. :) 

All the best,
Monika

Re COI for academics: I've recently come across Melodee Beals, a senior
lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University. Her userpage
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mhbeals> strikes me as an exemplar of
one way for academics to engage with Wikipedia. She has given thought and
space to making a declaration of interests, spelling out how she intends to
handle affiliations and her understanding of self-promotion.

Declaration of interest: Dr Beals is the colleague of a friend of mine.

Yes, that is very open and forthright.

"I have not and will not make edits on articles or materials related to the
institutions where I work, have worked, or may conceivably work at in the
future"

If interpreted broadly that would be a difficult statement to live up to
(do articles about alumni count? how about topics where the institution has
a research strength? is she committing to never use AWB or similar tools to
make minor fixes in bulk to whole categories of article which could include
affiliations?)

What a lovely article, really well contextualised. Congrats to interviewer
and interviewee.
Are there any British (or UK-based) women on this list who'd like to talk
to the press? WMUK can help put you in touch. Just let me know.

I am going to share this with many women students. It gives courage. And it
is correct in the minimal way many women who are included may be covered.
Many can be upgraded.

Thank you for this.

University of Sydney women's #wikibomb

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Sydney/University_of_Sydney_Wikibomb

This is going to be big.  There are 39 signed up (mostly female academics and students), but we are expecting nearer 100.

How Wikipedians can help:

We will have a decent number of experienced editors on site, but we will be stretched. Anyone who can provide online support 03:00-07:00 UTC tomorrow (Friday) would be much appreciated. Please add your name to the project page with a note so that we know who we can call on. Here's some ways you can help:

  1. Any sandbox started by a wikibomb participant should be added to Category:University of Sydney Wikibomb 2014 so that we can all find it.
  2. Monitor These Related Changes to look out for editors having trouble.
  3. Write (kind) sandbox_talk page comments if you see promotional language. It seems that some participants are intending to write articles about their friend/colleague/boss. The organizing team now all understand how much COI editing is discouraged, but I'm afraid academics are harder to herd than cats. We are at least trying to ensure that everyone declares their employer on their userpage, and declares any COI they have on the article talk.
  4. Assess articles' readiness to move into mainspace (also post a note on the talk page). Experienced Wikipedians will do these moves, but for COI and general stress relief, it would be good to have third party eyes over it.
  5. Categorize, prettify, wikidatify, wikiprojectify ({{WP Australia}}{{WP Biography}} etc) any articles that do make it into mainspace. We will not have time to concentrate on any of these things.
  6. Ping me (99of9) or another involved Wikipedian if you spot any problems.
  7. Publicise on Twitter (#Wikibomb) with a link to the project page

Thanks for helping!

Percentage of articles about women artists vs # of articles about men, using Wikidata

Hello,
I am preparing some slides for the Dutch Wikiconference this Saturday and wanted to share some interesting data on female artists. This year I have been working on various museum collections of paintings, while continuing to work on painter biographies. I am a big user of the Dutch RKD database of artists, which Magnus has kindly placed in Mix-n-Match. Just using the matches I made and the automatic matches, it is now possible to see some interesting data on how artists are represented across wikis.

The RKDartists database metadata was downloaded this year and contains 94,944 males and 60,282 females, or roughly 24% females, of which most were born after 1850. I have said before that part of the gendergap in the arts is caused by copyright issues (copyright-gap), and since most notable women artists were born after 1850, it would always appear that women are significantly less represented than men. The good news is that Wikimedia projects are much more welcoming to female artists than museum collections, where the percentage of women tends to be less than 3%. The data I have now shows that most Wikimedia projects have a percentage of women artist biographies that are well above 5%, or more than double what museums have on show.

I gathered the data using autolist and various combinations of the queries below
1) claim[21:6581072] and claim[650]
2) claim[650] and link[enwiki]

I assume similar results could be seen for the Joconde database, which I may do later.

Best,
Jane

Study on Wikipedia's communication environment and gender gap

Apologies if this study has already been linked here.

Barcelona Media studied emotion and dialogue on English Wikipedia 
article talk pages and published the paper "Emotions under Discussion: 
Gender, Status and Communication in Online Collaboration" in PLOS ONE. 
Among the study's findings was that "female editors engage in 
relationship-oriented speech that is conducive to a positive working 
environment."

I believe their conclusions also reinforce some of the initiatives at 
the Gender Gap Task Force. Particularly relevant is their conclusion 
that "our results suggest that being able to involve more women and to 
give them more space in the community would also result in a virtuous 
cycle of female participation, through the creation of a communication 
environment where they feel more comfortable."

> 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/ .
