Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)


On this poster and pecha kucha presentation we show you the work that we have done founding the "Wikiproyecto mujeres en la arquitectura" in the Wikipedia in Spanish. This wikiproject created a space conducive to narrow the gender gap, to increase the participation of women in Wikipedia and to try to address part of the systemic bias of Wikipedia in its coverage on the feminine participation in the history of architecture. We show the progress from the beginning with very few biographies of women architects in Wikipedia and the progress achieved today.


Sur cette affiche et pecha kucha presentation, nous vous montrons le travail que nous avons fait en fondant le Wikiprojet femmes en architecture dans Wikipedia en espagnol. Ce projet a créé un espace propice à réduire l'écart entre les sexes, à accroître la participation des femmes dans Wikipedia et à tenter d'aborder une partie du biais systémique de Wikipedia dans sa couverture sur la participation féminine à l'histoire de l'architecture. Nous montrons des progrès depuis le début avec très peu de biographies d'architectes dans Wikipedia et les progrès réalisés aujourd'hui.
