Hello everyone,

I have been a member of this mailing list for some time now and I think
it's time I properly introduce myself :)

Hi, my name is Japleen and I'm a feminist activist and entrepreneur based
in New Delhi, India. I run an online feminist media platform called *Feminism
In India* <https://feminisminindia.com/>. Apart from publishing an online
feminist magazine, running campaigns etc, we also organise monthly
Wikipedia Editathons.

One of our vision and mission is to increase the representation of Indian
women on the internet and we achieve that by writing on our website but
also editing Wikipedia.

I started editing Wikipedia in 2014, but was not regular. In 2016, I
attended some editathons and initiated the *FII Wiki Project*. Now, since
October 2016 we organise one Wikipedia editathon every month to write about
women, trans and non-binary people.

FII Wiki Project has partnered with *CIS A2K* and *Punjabi Wikimedians* in
the past. We choose a topic every month and try to partner with a group/org
who has subject expertise in it. For example, in September we partnered with*
Asia Safe Abortion Partnership* and organised an editathon to edit abortion
related pages of India and Asia Pacific.

I'm still new to the whole Wikimedia ecosystem and learning each day.
Currently, I personally contribute to the English Wikipedia, Commons and
Wikiquote.

Although each of our editathon is documented on the FII website, I have
recently also started documenting on Meta and the P&E dashboard. This is
the meta page of FII Wiki Project
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/FII_Wiki_Project>. It is still incomplete
so all suggestions are welcome!

I'm specifically writing to connect with women Wikimedians in India and
Wikimedians who are based in Delhi-NCR. At FII, we are still trying to form
a community and even after organising editathons for 2 years, we don't see
a lot of repeat attendees. So, it will be nice to meet some Wikimedians in
Delhi-NCR.

I'd also love to co-organise editathons with other language groups as long
as we can focus on gender. Please feel free to get in touch with me
personally at ***@feminisminindia.com.

I'd happy to answer questions anyone may have about what we do.

Warmly,
Japleen

Welcome to the Wikimedia community, Japleen. And thank you for your valuable contribution to the movement. There are a few other English, Hindi and Punjabi Wikimedians that live in Delhi. You might want to subscribe to the Delhi list here (https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-in-del). There is also a gender gap list which is quite relevant to the work you do
(https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/gendergap).

Hi Japleen,

Welcome to the community. I missed this thread somehow. It is great to hear
from you, and kudos to you for organising these workshops. I am keen to
understand the retention of these users after the workshops. Because that
is very important to build a local community. With you and Abhinav,
actively leading these, I'm sure that we'll have an active Wikimedia
community in Delhi soon :) Please let me know if you need any help.

Thanks
