I just submitted my presentation proposal for Wikimania 2011 ("Wikimedia
and Indigenous Peoples: Pros, Cons and Community" -
), and was curious about any other proposals -
either submitted by women, or about gender related topics and Wikimedia.
I encourage you to take a look, and if you hope to attend the conference
(even if you've applied for funding) sign your username to the bottom of
the talks you have interest in attending to show your support. This
list could be limited, as some names aren't always easy to decipher
gender from, so please bear with me and contribute if anything is missing!

There are no presentations that directly reflect women and their roles
in Wikipedia, to my surprise! Again, if I missed someone, I apologize!
