First of all

What is #geochicas?

OSM Latin American Women community

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

How it all started

The first time we ever got together was for the State of the Map Latam in Sao Paulo 2016

Of course we met at a bar!

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

Why did we decide to get together?

Only 3% of all OSM contributors are women

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

Budhatoki et al 2010 | Stark 2011 | Lechner 2011

only 3%????

Is the community the sum of its parts? In that case...

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

what did we discuss?

ROLE

REPRESENTATION

PARTICIPATION

OF WOMEN IN OSM

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

“Maps do not then emerge in the same way for all individuals. Rather they emerge in contexts and through a mix of creative, reflexive, playful, tactile and habitual practices; affected by the knowledge, experience and skill of the individual to perform mappings and apply them in the world.” Rob Kitchin

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

The role  in decision making spaces

 

the participation of women in activities of the community

 

the representation of women interests in the mapping community and in the map itself

“MAPS ARE PRACTICES”

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

We are "reclaiming mapping as a critical practice"

where we are

#Geochicas | #OSMintegra | #OSMintegrates

  • MÉXICO

  • Honduras

  • CUBA

  • NICARAGUA

  • COSTA RICA

  • VENEZUELA

  • PERU

  • BOLIVIA

  • PARAGUAY

  • BRASIL

What's the point of this?

  • Empower women in the community in order to have more projects led by women AND FOCUSED ON WOMEN.

  • Enlarge the OSM women's network.

  • Have more participation of women in OSM and tech activities.

  • create more spaces in which we can discuss the role, representation and participation of women.

  • discuss better Codes of conduct in the community that are appropriate for all.
