Diversity is not an intrinsic characteristic of the Commons, as we have been learning in the last years. Both the process and the production of the Commons can reproduce and reinforce patterns of racist and patriarchal power, leaving aside the faces and the views of those who are being oppressed. But the process of building a vibrant and strong Commons can also help us to fight against this tendency if we develop visibility strategies. In this presentation we will talk about some experiences: the #VisibleWikiWomen challenge, the Uncommon Women initiative, among others.
