Here what's making me happy this week! The filmed conference on non sexist language in French that we held at the francophone wikiconvention in Paris in august 2016 was elected media of the day on commons last tuesday. Four of the women we trained last year in a gender gap contribution workshop in Lausanne asked us to do another in Sion (Canton of Valais in Switzerland) and we have 19 participants! Some of them registered in the WikiMooc, the french free massive online open course to learn how to edit Wikipedia. So I have a sense that we are really building a community here and this makes me feel that all the time invested was worth and it was not only something evolving around national issues but truly about something global going over national identities and bridging cultural and ideological gaps as well.
