Launching the #SheSaid drive on Wikiquote
On the 20th October, at the Gender Gap panel for the Creative Commons Virtual Global Summit, Wiki Loves Women's Anthere and Islahaddow launched the SheSaid campaign. The SheSaid drive is aimed at improving the visibility of women across Wikimedia projects by creating new or improving already existing Wikiquote entries spoken by notable women.
Why the SheSaid campaign?
One reason is to balance the representation of gender in the entries of Wikiquote. The other is to show that women's quotes are less likely to be featured than men's. Here are a few statistics:
- On the English Wikiquote main page on 6th of Oct 2020, in the Selected people section... 29 men are featured and only 4 women (check out the screenshot on the right...)
- There are 233 women who have a featured article on either French or English Wikipedias... with no entry on the French Wikiquote check it out
- There are 141 women featured article on the English Wikipedia with no wikiquote entry check it
- There are 519 women listed on the French wikiquote check it and 3117 men listed check it out
Obviously, not all women say good quotes that would make a wikiquote entry worth it. Still...
How to get involved?
SheSaid runs until the 20h of December 2020. We hope you will take part! Please share with your community! To find out more and join the campaign here.
The question of whether or not the following statement is related to women's rights seems to be a recurring issue at Przemysław Czarnek:
"Career first, maybe later a child, leads to tragic consequences. If the first child is not born [when the mother is aged] 20–25 years, only at the age of 30, how many children can [the mother] bear? Those are the consequences of telling a woman that she doesn't have to do what she was destined to do by the Lord God." People interested in the topic of women's rights might wish to keep an eye on the article. Boud (talk) 19:20, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Amanda Rousseau (malware unicorn)
Does she meet notability guidelines?
I'd be happy to fabricate a stub. ��� Alexis Jazz (talk or ping me) 20:37, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
- Hmm, if those are the best sources for claiming notability, I'd say she's borderline notable at best. Some of them are pretty clearly not the "significant coverage in independent reliable sources" that count towards the general notability guideline – I would say that the Wired video, BoingBoing article, Teen Vogue article, defcon listing, and malwareunicorn.org are not independent of the subject; and the two threatpost articles aren't significant coverage of Rousseau. That leaves two sources: the LA Times article, which is clearly primarily based off an interview with her, and the CyberScoop interview. Whether an interview with someone counts towards their notability is at-best divisive: there was a big discussion back in 2018, with one side arguing that they're clearly not independent of the subject by virtue of being an interview, while the other side argued that though the information contained within an interview is not independent when we're assessing the reliability of the factual claims within them, the fact that an independent reliable source chose to interview that person is still an indication of notability. Unless there's been a more recent discussion that I've missed, on the basis of that discussion I personally wouldn't create an article on someone where the best claims to notability are interviews with that person. I wouldn't want to bet on the article surviving at AfD. (Though I haven't done any of my own research except from the sources you linked; if there are better sources out there, the case for notability may be stronger.)

- (And, just for completeness' sake - I don't see that there's a claim that she meets WP:ANYBIO to be made, and I don't think there's another more specific notability guideline that she might qualify for) Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 21:19, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
- Caeciliusinhorto, thanks, I was afraid that might be the answer. Glad I didn't jump ahead to creating an article. My personal opinion is that interviews from independent sources should count towards notability, but not everyone shares that view. It's possible there are more sources out there ("Amanda Rousseau" is a surprisingly common name so I included her handle when searching which may have excluded some sources) and perhaps she'll be reported on some more in the future. Guess I'll shelve this for now. Btw, boingboing was posted by Cory Doctorow, it seems independent of the subject to me, what did I miss? — Alexis Jazz (talk or ping me) 21:33, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
- Alexis Jazz: The reason I wouldn't want to use the BoingBoing article to establish notability is because, though it is posted by Doctorow (who is clearly a well-regarded source on the topic!) he isn't really discussing Rousseau in depth - the opening paragraphs are about her course, and the bulk of the text is just copied from her own site. Maybe you could argue that the first paragraph is an independent reliable source on Rousseau, but then I think you'd struggle to justify it as significant coverage.
- I've done a little googling and I can't find anything that's super clearly establishing her notability, but it feels like she's the kind of person who might get more coverage in future - one to watch, perhaps! Caeciliusinhorto (talk) 09:19, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
Hello. Which are the articles where content regarding the "Red apple tradition" may be added? Few sources regarding this tradition are:
