Všeobecný popis

Description: Throughout the 19th and 20th century, women around the world have fought for their right to participate in elections. Women in Switzerland were the last in Western Europe, gaining suffrage on 7 February 1971, 50 years ago. And still today, women in some parts of the world are not able to vote, even when men are. In this online camp, which is part of the bigger “Wikipedia for Peace” project and a cooperation between SCI and Wikimedia Switzerland, you will get to know Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. You will also learn about the feminist movement and inspiring activists within it!

Type of Work: Doing research for Wikipedia articles online about women‘s suffrage and feminism, writing new articles and improving existing ones. The project organizers will prepare a list of articles around people and topics that are related to camp topic. Every day we have ca. 3 hours in the afternoon (Central European Time) where we gather in Zoom. And in the mornings you can work individually or in small groups. You don’t have to have knowledge on Wikipedia already.

Study Theme: There will be a big emphasis on studying in this camp. We will learn how to write good Wikipedia articles. We will learn about the principles behind Wikimedia projects as well as free licences/open content philosophy in general. We will learn about the history of women‘s suffrage and feminism. We will get to know more about amazing people that fought or are fighting for women‘s suffrage - through our own research, through exchange with other participants and through external inputs.

Accommodation: Your own bedroom! :)

Language: We will speak English in the group. You can write Wikipedia articles in any language you want. We encourage you to write in your native language.

Requirements: You need a laptop (smartphones or tablets won't work) and a good internet connection that works with video calls. It is crucial for us that you are motivated to participate throughout the whole project! Please send us a motivation letter stating why you are interested Wikipedia and in working on Wikipedia articles about women's rights as well as confirming your availability during the project.
