Feminism and Folklore

About the project

Feminism and Folklore is an international writing contest organized at Wikipedia annually in the month of February and March to document folk cultures and women in folklore in different regions of the world on Wikipedia. This project is the Wikipedia edition of the photography campaign Wiki Loves Folklore (WLF) that is organized on Wikimedia Commons to document folklore traditions around the world.

The basic aim of the competition is to collect articles on human cultural diversity in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. This year we focus on folk culture around the globe, with a particular attention to closing the gender gap, as we are partnering with other affiliates and groups across the world.

Since 2019, we have been organizing a multilingual Wikipedia contest and chosen to place the project on meta allowing inter wikis, inter-lingual and inter-project cooperation, to foster the true aspect of our global wikilove movement. The articles provided must match the theme, which means that most users will be able to find several pertaining subjects close to the theme, whether festivals, dances, cuisine, clothing or daily life routine emphasizing on folk culture of that area. You are free to choose an article from our working list, or pick up a topic of your own provided it is in relation with the main theme and focusing on closing the gender gap. Intangible cultural heritage has different meanings for different groups thus it looks at enhancing content, helps with intercultural dialogue, and encourages mutual respect for other ways of life. It also brings forth cultural diversity knowledge for users consumption
