WOMEN COMMENTS

  • THE SEXIST TONE IN THE CHANNELS DEMOTIVATES THEIR PARTICIPATION

  • WOMEN FEEL A SYSTEMATIC TARGET OF DISCRIMINATION IN THE CHANNELS

  • ATTENTION CALLS ARE USUALLY ATTACKED (IF THEY ARE WOMEN)

  • THE EXPRESSION OF EXPERIENCE IS NOT ACCEPTED, WOMEN ARE CONSIDERED AS NOVICE

  • WE NEED TO DEFINE CODES, SANCTIONS, REPORTING MECHANISMS

  • SPECIFIC CALLS TO EMPOWER WOMEN

  • PROMOTION OF WOMEN NETWORKS AND SPACES, TO EMPOWERMENT

  • PEER-TO-PEER TRAINING

  • ATTENTION TO MAPPING-PROJECTS ISSUES WITH IMPACT ON WOMEN

MEN COMMENTS

  • DISCRIMINATION IS NOT BASED ON GENDER

  • CULTURAL DOMINATION OF EUROPEAN / NORTH AMERICAN MEN

  • HOSTILITY BY SPECIFIC PROFILE: FANATIC-MAPPER, EXPERIMENTED VS NOVICE

  • NO FORMAL IMPEDIMENT TO PARTICIPATE = NO DISCRIMINATION

  • LACK OF INTEREST/PARTICIPATION MUST BE RESPECTED

  • DOUBTS ON THE IMPACT IN THE MAP, OF THE LACK OF DIVERSITY

  • ATTENTION CALLS ABOUT AGRESSIVE TONE IN THE CHANNELS ARE IGNORED

  • DO NOT SEPARATE GENDERS BUT DO MORE PARTICIPATORY ACTIVITIES

  • DO NOT VICTIMIZE WOMEN, RAISE AWARENESS IN GENERAL

  • FOCUS ACTIVITIES ON DIVERSITY IN GENERAL, NOT JUST GENDER

GENERAL COMMENTS

  • HOSTILITY IS GENERAL IN OSM CHANNELS, GENERALLY FROM HIGH LEVEL MAPPERS, IT DEMOTIVATES PARTICIPATION

  • ALL GENDERS NOTICE SPECIFIC HOSTILITY TOWARDS PEOPLE ASKING TO CHANGE THE TONE

  • NEED FOR MODERATION IN CHANNELS

  • NEED TO ADVOCATE FOR COURTESY VALUES IN GENERAL, INTEGRATION, SUPPORT OF THE NOVICE

  • NEED FOR INTEGRATION OF DIVERSITY IN GENERAL, NOT BASED ON GENDER

  • INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE

  • DEFINE CODES OF CONDUCT

  • AWARENESS AGAINST HIERARCHIES
