Who is your Shero? Become Author and Write about Her in Gynapedia

Three rays of light that create nine corners represents the Nine Mago Creatrix.

Gynapedia is live as of Equinox March 20, 2017! Check out Gynapedia, a free online gynocentric encyclopedia (http://www.gynapedia.com). 

Who is your shero, mentor, or teacher? Who has influenced you to become a feminist, activist, or Goddessian? As a feminist, activist, and Goddessian, who do you want the world know? You CAN write about her and her work in Gynapedia. Mother-daughter, friends, and a group can collectively create a page.

Unlike Wikipedia, Gynapedia Authors CAN create pages about themselves, their friends, and their organizations. In addition, they, unlike those of Wikipedia, CAN use external links to their websites and published articles (see below “How Gynapedia differs from Wikipedia). Foremost, they are strongly encouraged to use internal links to related authors and advocacies for network and collaboration. While Gynapedia provides Authors with exceptional rights and advantages, it is of utmost importance that Authors write articles within the broadly defined theme of feminism, activism, and Goddess Spirituality. All pages in Gynapedia must be written in the style of an encyclopedia article, which requires a synopsis, subsection, objective or third person voice, and/or support by researches. Table of contents is strongly recommended.

If you are interested, please email your application below to Gynapedia Administration Circle (magopoolcircle@gmail.com). You can become Gynapedia Author(s) or let our volunteers create pages for you!

What is Gynapedia? Gynapedia is a gift-sharing project supported by The Mago Work, which includes Mago Pool Circle[1], Return to Mago E-Magazine[2], Mago Academy[3], and Mago Books[4]. Administered by Gynapedia Administration Circle, Gynapedia is a collective endeavor to serve the general public as well as feminists, activists, and Godessians, broadly defined. In addition to be a compendium of comprehensive topics, Gynapedia intends to promote network and collaboration among her users across cultures and geographies. This is an English version of Gynapedia.

Gynapedia is using the platform called Mediawiki[5], a free software created and used by and for Wikipedia[6]. Note that Gynapedia is operated independently from Wikpeida especially during the first year. Registered Users, unlike Wikipedia, will be given the right of editing at Stage II, to be announced.

Three rays of light that create nine corners represents the Nine Mago Creatrix.

Mago Academy is happy to announce that Gynapedia, a free online gynocentric encyclopedia, is live to the public view! Visit us http://www.gynapedia.com.

Welcome to Gynapedia, a free online gynocentric encyclopedia. Gynapedia is a gift-sharing project supported by The Mago Work, a group of collaborative projects including Mago Pool Circle[1], Return to Mago E-Magazine[2], Mago Academy[3], and Mago Books[4].

In addition to be a compendium of comprehensive topics, Gynapedia intends to promote network and collaboration among her users across cultures and geographies. This is an English version of Gynapedia.

The concrete idea of Gynapedia[5] came into being in January 2017 as an extension of Mago Pool Circle[6], co-founded byHelen Hye-Sook Hwang. Hwang proposed the idea of a free online encyclopedia to be implemented to Mago Sisters. Kaalii Cargillsuggested the Mediawiki platform. The name Gynapedia owes to Kaalii Carill and Mago Sisters who supported it. Spider Redgold conducted the installation of Mediawiki. Sumaiyah Dymonz undertook the task of Local Settings management. Hwang coordinated tasks among the Administration Circle, while continuing to build the basic structure of Gynapedia. For the first year, Gynapedia Administration Circle includes Helen Hye-Sook Hwang, Sumaiyah Dymonz Yates, Spider Redgold, Kaalii Cargill. Mediawiki Management Circle includes Sumaiyah Dymonz Yates and Helen Hye-Sook Hwang.

Gynapedia is using the platform called Mediawiki[7], a free software created and used by and for Wikipedia[8]. Note that Gynapedia is operated independently from Wikpeida especially during the first year. Find out how Gynapedia differs from Wikipedia in Gynapedia:Author’s Handbook.
