Women in Science Oxford Editathon: Ada Lovelace Day 2013
Hello all. Among the crop of upcoming Women in Science events is this one in Oxford, UK, happening with the support of the Bodleian libraries, some departments and units of Oxford University, and the Wikimedia UK/Jisc collaboration. As with similar events, both in-person and online participation are encouraged. This follows from an Ada Lovelace Day event last year which was very popular: see the event page for more details.
- It was great fun and in a short time there was a lot done and, it seems, some lasting enthusiasm created. Outcomes here. MartinPoulter Jisc (talk) 11:26, 17 October 2013 (UTC)
Discussion of terminology ("survivor", "victim", etc) at Rape culture
There is a discussion about the use of terminology at Rape culture that has, I think, larger implications for how rape is discussed on-wiki. The dispute revolves around these edits. Additional input would be welcome. Posting here because the article is noted on its talk page as being of interest to this WIkiProject. -- [ UseTheCommandLine ~/talk ]# ▄ 10:05, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi all, I just wanted to let you know about a proposal I've put up on Meta. I'm currently piloting a project at my university, Loyola University Chicago, to increase participation among women students and improve content on women scientists. I want to learn from this model and create a template that can be used at other institutions and conduct outreach and testing in the Chicago area. I've put in an IEG proposal here and I would love to have some feedback from the members of the project! (And my apologies if you've already seen this message.)

Good article reassessment for Hope Solo article
Hope Solo, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for a community good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article. Hmlarson (talk) 06:00, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
Nomination of Beatrice Kozera for deletion
Beatrice Kozera was the Mexican farmworker girlfriend who inspired one of Jack Kerouac's characters, and the subject of a film and an upcoming fictional biography. Djembayz (talk) 00:01, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Apparently she fenced in the men's foil in the 1952 Olympics and then won gold at the 1956 Women's Foil. The earliest known transgender Olympian? No sloppy editing because no one really cares about women at Wikipedia220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:13, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
New article on an American Civil War nurse who was made an honorary member of the Grand Army of the Republic – needs clean up and better referencing. Plenty of sources are listed but there are very few inline citations, and most of those are bare URLS. Voceditenore (talk) 13:57, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
Inclusion criteria question
Would the Abby Wambach article fall withing the confines of this project? In my opinion, she's helped break down barriers for women in football/soccer and sports and would meet the inclusion criteria. Curious about other's opinions? Thank you. Hmlarson (talk) 23:42, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
- Opinions about inclusion criteria are also sought here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Feminism#Opinion_sought. XOttawahitech (talk) 00:19, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
- @Hmlarson: Here's the inclusion criteria from the front page:
A biography that has met the notability requirements outlined at WP:BIO may be included within this project if it meets one of the following criteria.
I was wondering if anyone would like to work on this article? In about a month, when the semester ends, I can work on this (and I have plenty of resources) but would like some help in sorting it out for WP.Lihaas (talk) 19:53, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Firewoman listed at Redirects for discussion
An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Firewoman. Since you had some involvement with the Firewoman redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so). -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:16, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
