Wikipedia Primary School invitation for sexism[edit]

Hi everybody. On behalf of the teams behind the Wikipedia Primary School research project, I would like to announce that the article sexism was selected a while ago to be reviewed by an external expert. Unfortunately, the expert who had agreed to review had to decline later on. Our first call for community review was already 6 months ago and since then the article has changed quite a lot. We have identified another expert to help review the articles. We would like to ask interested editors to join our efforts and improve the article before October 31, 2015 (any timezone) as they see fit.
A revision will be then sent to the designated expert for review. Any notes and remarks written by the external expert will be made available on the talk pages under a CC-BY-SA license as soon as possible, so that you can read them, discuss them and then decide if and how to use them. Please sign up here to let us know you're collaborating. Thanks a lot for your support! -- Anthere (talk)

Possible move for disambiguation[edit]

A discussion is taking place concerning a possible move of Committee for the Defence of Human Rights to Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (Slovenia). Your feedback is welcome at WT:WPDIS#Committee for the Defense of Human Rights. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 07:37, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Consent search and Terry stop (stop and frisk)[edit]

Hello, I would like to lobby your WikiProject to add Consent search and Stop and frisk (which redirects to Terry stop, the technical term) to your project. Both are major drivers in racial profiling and police abuse. A good example is in the following LA Times story: "L.A. County deputies stopped thousands of innocent Latinos on the 5 Freeway in hopes of their next drug bust".[1] Other examples are: Stop-and-frisk in New York City and Ferguson unrest (caused by a terry stop, community exploded because of heavy-handed use of terry stops and consent searches). Also, both pages need work, so please come by and help out. Thanks! Seahawk01 (talk) 09:10, 7 November 2018 (UTC)


Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:49, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Proposed article moves for "Grace Gao"[edit]

There's a proposed series of article moves around a couple of women called Grace Gao (one is a badminton player, the other a human rights activist). Grace Gao (human rights activist) is a new article and I thought people here might in interested in joining the discussion. Basically, as it says in the opening to the proposition, the move would be 'Grace GaoGrace Gao (badminton):

There are two articles about people called Grace Gao, neither of which, it seems, have priority over the other in terms of which should be "primary topic". Moving the content of this article to "Grace Gao (badminton)" (following article naming conventions: e.g., Michelle Li (badminton)) would distinguish the Grace Gao this article refers to from Grace Gao (human rights activist) — with Grace Gao (disambiguation) enabling people to find which Grace Gao they are looking for. This would be following similar precedent of, for example, Alexandra Bruce (badminton); Michael Fuchs (badminton); Kevin Li (badminton); Michelle Li (badminton) [all of which have corresponding disambiguation pages].

The discussion has actually changed a bit now, focusing on whether there is primary references that "Grace Gao" should link to. --Woofboy (talk) 20:53, 12 November 2018 (UTC)


I added Quotaism to this project as it appears relevant but also low quality and possibly overlapping with articles such as affirmative action. If this was inappropriate please feel free to remove the project. MegaSloth (talk) 09:54, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
